I wanted to upload every night; but I couldn’t…simply because I was tired.
My counterpart and also a friend joined this mission so we worked hard and enjoyed hard in Nagoya.
We continued our night chatting in my room till late because we miss each other.
She is an efficient officer and became friend since last October.
Since then, she came in May this year and September.
We had few projects working together.
Nagoya Kanko Hotel is a nice hotel.
Breakfast menu is the same; but I didnt mind getting the same thing because food quality is good.
Attended workshops, seminars, business meetings and networking.
I’m with friends so it was fun to attend all programme together.
As a part of programmes, I visited factories.
Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take any photos there; therefore, I cannot share anything with you, but I could say two factories are well advancedand, sophisticated and automated.
They are Toyota (automobile: Prius) and Hoden Seimitsu Kako Kenkyujo (HSK: aerospace engine parts).
I could take photos at Toyota Museum only.
Newly launched car: Hilux
And a robot to play music.
We also maximized our time after the programme.
Celebrating friend’s Birthday together.
Went out for dinner.
Nagoya local delicacy: Hitsumabushi.
We can eat eel in three different ways: 1. Eat as it is, 2. Add condiments such as Negi (Japanese leeks) and wasabi, 3. Add soup and seaweed to 2.
Even Indian Food
Shopping at Donki (Don Quijote) @ Sakai, Nagoya.
And Japanese traditional shopping arcades: Oosu, Nagoya.
On Saturday, before we returned for Tokyo, I played golf at Golf 5 Yokkaichi Golf Course @ Yokkaichi, Mie.
The course is located one hour away from Nagoya and the play fee is reasonable for weekends: about JPY 13,000 inclusive breakfast and lunch.
This was planed during my stay; therefore, I had to buy golf shoes, glove and balls.
We can overlook Yokkaichi City from the club house.
It was a day to play a game.
It’s been hectic two weeks, working without break – not even weekends; but I enjoyed it.
I strongly believe that I could complete these projects because my friends and also colleagues from overseas helped me greatly, including moral support.
Today, I’ve been lazy.
I miss my bed and stayed till the appointment time for hair salon.
I got massage for head and shoulders which I needed at this moment.
