How did Sakura Science Plan play a role in your study / research in Japan?

Having another chance to come back to work in Japan for the second time, I have realized that the experience I learned during participation in the Sakura Science program helped me a lot. That time, in that short trip to JapanI, I had learned only a bit of Japanese culture, the behaviors and attitudes of people in work environment, but it helped me to quickly integrate into my work and life this time. The experience from the previous program helped me get accustomed to the new research more faster, work more efficiently and achieve better results which made me satisfied.

Please describe your comments freely related to your life in Japan.

This time back to Japan, I worked at the Joining and Welding Research Institute (JWRI) in Osaka University where I participated in the Sakura Science Plan (SSP) two year ago. This is quite good for me because I already have some experience with this area. At the institute, I had to research a new topic that I haven't had the chance to practice in Vietnam. It is quite a difficult topic, but I feel lucky to work in JWRI because I am receiving a lot of support from all members of the lab and also from the professors there. They are very kind and professional in their work. I would like to give my sincere gratitude to the professors and friends who I worked with, thanks to their help I have accomplished my missions.

Please describe your message to people who are going to participate in this program.

Participating in the Sakura Science Program is a very good opportunity for any participant. This is a chance for you to understand more about the culture, traditions, and people of Japan. You will have an opportunity to access an advanced and professional research environment at the Japanese universities. It will help you improve your ability and level through research activities. It helps you go further in your career.
I hope you will have many memories in your mind after joining this program. Good luck!
