Discover the spirit of Japan

My mother-in-law, her sister and husband (Bak Cu and Pak Cu) and my sister-in-law is now holidaying in Japan to visit Udin (Bak Cu and Pak Cu’s son) who is studying Mechanical Engineering in Shibaura Institute of Technology, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Udin is having his convocation there, that’s the main reason they are there. They went a week ago and will be coming back in few days time. They seem to enjoy it there, they went shopping, they went to Nippori (textile town), they went for spa, they went to Yokohama port and many more. My sister-in-law posted great photos from Japan and one if it being interviewed by Fuji TV!

I could not help but feeling envy; envy in a good way as it really makes me want to visit Japan and this has triggered me to find out more about Japan. I came about this interesting video about Japan ‘Discover the Spirit of Japan’ on YouTube, thought I share it with here. Jom, let’s discover Japan! Japan is so on my travel bucket list now.

And as for Udin, he will be working there after having been graduated from Shibaura Institute of Technology last March 16. He will start working this coming April 1 with KAO Co. Ltd. for few years. He has been staying there for 4 years now and can speak Japanese fluently as he took 5 years course learning Japanese language; 3 years with UNISEL and 2 years in Japan.

When asked about the people in Japan, Udin told me they are very helpful people and willing to help the best they can provided that we can speak their language. They love it when foreigner can speak their language. So this is a good tip for us if we want to visit Japan.

Good luck Udin, all the best from Malaysia! I will definitely find you if I have the chance to visit Japan.
