Business Trip to Wakayama (Day 4)

I couldn’t upload on that day, but I think I should share what I experienced in that day.

Well, I was sentimental disabling this view from my window.

Before leaving Wakayama, we had an excursion to learn Japanese technology and culture.

First, we visited Shima Seiki Mfg Ltd.

This company is leading sewing machine in the world which occupies 60% of global market.

The company introduced a whole garment machine to reduce waste by producing a clothing by one single yarn.

The company also introduced 3D design machine to reduce time and cost.

The company has amazing technology, but I’m not allowed to take any photos at the premises.

I received a nice souvenir from them.

Then we visited Nakano BC: brewer of sake, Umeshu (plum wine), shochu (Japanese distilled liquor) and also producer of ume extract as health food.

The company name, BC means Biochemical Creation.

This is my first tour of Umeshu company.

Reserve Tanks

Processing Tanks

This is Sake production tank.

I remember this Sugidama (a ball) as a good luck charm.

However, it has more meaning to it.

It means when it turns green to brown, it means Sake is ready, time to enjoy it.

I tried their plum extract which is so sour!!!

It supposed to supplement improving blood flow, lowering blood pressure, anti-bacteria and many more.

There is a machine to check our blood flow.

I was worried that I might get a negative comments; on the contrary, my blood flow is good! Yeah!

I had a vegetarian lunch at the harbor.

Typhoon 7 wad approaching the area so tides are high.

There is a fish market a d fruit market to enjoy shopping Wakayama delicacies.

I enjoyed staying in Wakayama and would love to come back again!!!

This what I wanted to report the other day…

Business Trip to Wakayama (Day 2)

I started my day with a luxurious breakfast – Wakayama local specialties and Wakayama Castle.

I believe ONLY Japan can provide this scenery: breakfast with a castle. hahaha

I was pumped with this breakfast to attend the workshop for capacity building organized by International Trade Centre.

This is my first time to participate in workshop which applies mix format of theoretical presentation, group discussion and practical exercises.

All of us come from different countries; it was fun to discuss to practice exercises.

I would like to participate again in this kind of workshop for self improvement.

I thought I can change it from outside.

Cable…?

Suddenly, I couldn’t use my office email account.

My boss and colleague were telling me earlier that they are unable to use their email.

Therefore, I asked for IT engineer to remote in my PC to solve the problem.

According to the engineer, the system is working, but I am disconnected.

I was asked to unplug and plug back the cable.

Solved.

But how could it happen?

I didn’t touch the connection.

I was fine till noon; then suddenly lost the connection…?

Hummmm
