Today is Tuesday, when I have two lectures to teach. The first one is for graduate students starting at 9 AM. This class is shared by three professors including me. I finished my last 7th tern, so I will not teach this class from next week. In the afternoon, I am instructing undergraduate students in practical electronics. This class is not exciting, but students are steadily learning. Anyway, Tuesdays will be easier.
I went to Tokyo University of Science at Kagurazaka for two meetings, an awards ceremony, a lecture, and a party of a scientific society I am joining. I went up to the 17th floor. I am an official of the society. I had recommended a professor for the society prize, which he received. So I went to see him awarded and giving a lecture. After his lecture, there was a small party. I congratulated him on his award. He was happy. After coming back to Kofu, I saw booths of wineries in front of the station. Many people were enjoying wines and foods. Tasting would have been fun if I … Continue reading
I had two classes today. During the lectures, I used the air conditioners to cool down for the first time in this year. Mariya wore a short‐sleeved shirt.
I was busy today with two lectures. In the evening, I was running out for a meeting. I jumped and broke my iPhone 5 I bought with Katya last December. I did not know that the screen was so fragile. Other than the screen, it worked, but I need to replace it to a new one, anyway. I got shocked. After I came back home, we had deliveries. BODY SHOP bottles from the director of our institute, for whom we held a party for his awards. Wines I bought at “Tomi no Oka” on Sunday. I am looking forward to trying them.
It is Monday today. There is no meeting at all; I checked e-mails, wrote syllabi for the lectures, and sent on the web the scores of the students taking my classes. I went to see a nose doctor, and had my hair cut at a barber’s. In the evening, Katya and I talked on skype. Katya said that her parents gave many souvenirs to Japan. She will be coming back to Japan tomorrow from Vladivostok.
Today is the first day of the international workshop, which I was preparing for. In the morning, I woke up early to take a long walk with Maya-san. Then I drove to Kofu Fujiya Hotel, where the workshop was held. I was chairing the meeting. There were 200 participants. During the lunch time, I came back to say hello to Maya-san. We had a coffee break, too. Seven invited lectures were given. Banquet started at 6 PM. Japanese traditional guitars were played. I left soon for Maya-san’s dinner and walk.
Katya is in Vladivostok. I took Maya-san out for a walk in the morning before going to school. There was a small international meeting starting at 10 AM. Six lectures were given. I saw two German professors after a year, both of whom are invited. During the lunch time, I quickly went back home to say hello to Maya-san. The meeting ended at 4 PM. At 5 PM, I went back home for Maya-san’s walk. After the walk, she asked for a shower again. At 8 PM, I finished my job. Today, I was able to talk with Katya on skype. She told me she could hear my voice clearly. … Continue reading
In the morning class starting at 9 AM, I gave students the final exam of the lectures before the summer vacation. Actually, I had shown all the questions two weeks before, and the questions I gave today were exactly the same. Besides, I let students bring any material, such as notebooks, textbooks, notes, and even PCs! One out of four students failed. How could it be? I gave those unsuccessful students some more chances to recover their grades. In the afternoon class starting at 1 PM, I have been teaching the basic of electronic circuits to freshmen . Today, they presented what they had learned in front of the teachers. One student … Continue reading
Two lectures on Tuesday as usual. When I was about to leave after the first class, a Malaysian girl student came to ask a question of me. After the explanation, I asked her how much she understands my lecture. “30%”. Gee, I was disappointed! Of course, I expected a little more than that. I hope it should not be because of my English, or, should I wish so? Anyway, I have some more chances of recovery. After the lab tour in the afternoon, the Chinese student liked my research. So he will work with me during his stay. I hope he will enjoy this opportunity more than 30%.
I had breakfast in the hotel. Akihabara was seen from the window. I checked out, took a train, and arrived at the Kagurazaka Campus of Tokyo University of Science. I arrived at the hall 20 minutes before the lectures. There were about 100 learners mostly from companies. I was the second lecturer to make a 70-minute talk. After five lectures, there was a Q&A time. The listeners were very dedicated and studious. All lectures ended at 5:30 PM. Lectures and hosts had a dinner together at a Japanese pub. After the dinner, I took trains home. On the way back, near Takao Station, an accident happened to the train, … Continue reading
