I belong in J group, in category of science and technology. With I group we went to Fukuoka. On the first day I arrive at Narita International Airport. I spent the rest of this day at Hotel Nikko Narita. There I was given orientation of the program and met my other group members. On the second day we're in Tokyo and heard a lecture by ASEAN-Japan Center. On the third day we went to Fukuoka by airplane. We went to Ohori Park and experience Noh Play. On the fourth day we heard a lecture by NEXT Systems, Co., Ltd and Fukuoka Prefectural Government. On the fifth day we heard a lecture at Oki Town Sustainable Centre “Kururun”, visited Toyota Motor Kyushu, heard a lecture about agricultural produce in Asakura, and have a home visit with local residents in Asakura City. On the sixth day we visited Kyushu Institute of Technology to have a lecture about the Institute, have a discussion we local undergraduate students, and had a workshop there for presentaion for the next day. The seventh day we returned to Tokyo and went to Gardem City Chiba to presentate our action plan after this program. Finally we returned to our own country the next day.
The schedule for this group overall was mostly about knowing Japan and Fukuoka, and had an update of the latest technology. The most important thing on this program is the links that we have established among our friends from different countries and friends from Japan.
