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
From the early morning, I have been carrying out experiments with a student of mine and a researcher from Panasonic. By our side, a professor from Keio University was doing his with my colleague. When I had time, I was writing a paper, too. Students came to me once in a while to ask me how to submit their abstracts and register themselves with the conference (actually, the registration procedure was very complicated). I got so tired after these three day. When I came home, Katya started talking with her parents on Skype. Mariya was on a new foam-plastic matress we bought at Babies “R” Us in Odaiba. Katya … Continue reading
From yesterday, I have been working with Shimadzu and Panasonic researchers in my lab. Pretty tiring because I have little time to rest. Shimadzu researchers left this evening, but Panasonic researchers stay until tomorrow. Tomorrow, a professor from Keio University arrives to carry out another experiments. I was pretty exhausted when I arrived home. Katya made a lot of spaghetti, and I finished it all.
In the morning, I went to Myorenji in Yokohama to check the apartment building. The building was well taken care of. I had a talk with a guy from the managing company about the care in the future. I was to see a professor in Keio University in Hiyoshi. Before the meeting, I went to Motosumiyoshi, where I had lived for two years. It is an old town. The road was neatly changed, but the streets and stores looked still old. After having lunch in Motosumiyoshi, I went to the laboratory in Keio Univeristy to discuss my project with a professor until 2 PM. Then I took trains to Honancho to … Continue reading
During the night, I prepared my presentation slides. I changed the story from what I had been thinking, so it took time. I finished the first version of my presentation at 10 AM. Then I went to Hawaii Convention Center to listen to my colleague, who was invited. Then I came back to my room, which was already cleaned. I kept working, upgrading the slides. I went to the meeting room in Hilton at 4 PM. It was a small room with 30 – 40 participants. My presentation started at 5 PM. I am new in this field, and I first talked about the background of my research carefully. Then, … Continue reading
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
An institute lodging in Yamanakako Village is held every year. This year, about 80 people joined. We left the institute by bus at 5 PM and arrived at the hotel, “Resort Inn Ai“, before 7 PM. The lobby looked nice. However, the inside was an ordinary Japanese lodge for students. The party started at 7:30 PM. In order to save money, we brought in Hors-d’œuvre and sushi. The party ended at 9:30 PM, but many students and teachers stayed, talking and drinking till the morning came. I took a bath, and went to sleep at midnight with two other professors in the same room.
I woke up at 5 AM, checked e-mails, got packed, and left the hotel by bus at 6:30 AM for the airport with five other Japanese professors. We arrived a little bit early for the check-in time, so we had breakfast at McDonald’s. They sell rice porridge in China, but I had an egg McMuffin, because I wanted to eat something different. At the entrance of the airport, we found a souvenir shop “旅の佳品”, or “Chosen Goods for Travels”, only selling Japanese goods. On the internet, I found that this shop is run by a Japanese company. The plane left the airport at 9 AM. It was a smooth flight. … Continue reading
While in Japan, I did not finish preparing my presentation, so I woke up at 3 AM to finish it. I had breakfast at 7 AM. The bus left at 8 AM for SiChuan University for the forum starting at 8:30 AM. I was the second to the last to talk, and waited for a while till my turn came. I showed 40 slides in 20 minutes to make people impressed. I think they were impressed, but instead, probably they did not understand me very well. After the final talk from the Chinese leader, we went back to the hotel and had lunch again in Shangri-La. After lunch, we walked … Continue reading
