I woke up and had breakfast in the hotel. The three students are staying in the same place.
We walked together to “Shimadzu Keihanna Laboratory“, where the subleader of my project is working. It took only 10 minutes from the hotel.
The Shimadzu researchers have already designed new cells, and the parts for the cells have arrived from manufacturing companies. We brought some other materials to construct the cells together.
We started working from 9 AM. We kept working till 5:30 PM. The results were not satisfactory to me; I give B-.
The subleader told me that they had reserved dinner for us in a restaurant, Kanseikyo, in our hotel. We thankfully accepted it.
Four of us and two researchers from Shimadzu walked to the restaurant.
I only took a picture of the restaurant table before the dinner started (not to be very rude!).
Later, another researcher from Shimadzu joined us. I was thrilled because he was one of those who started the preliminary investigations together with me seven years ago.
He is still very active. I think he will make a good researcher/manager.
