I had an absolutely amazing time in Japan! I feel as though I have learned a huge amount about the cultural, business, and education worlds from such a short amount of time.
I enjoyed every activity we participated in during the trips in some way. My favourite part of the study tour ended up being the University of Tokyo Kashiwa campus visit, since I had not expected it to be so impressive, with its many top of the line physics laboratories.
The study tour was definitely worth the time and effort involved, as it has given me some valuable experience which I should be able to carry into the future and apply to my career. So to any nanotechnology students considering going next year, I highly recommend it!
Hopefully I am lucky enough to be able to return one day, for a longer amount of time. For now though, I am glad to be back home for a bit of a rest before getting started with the assignments.
