My internship in Japan was an experience of a lifetime. The opportunity to work under world class researchers and humanoid robots like HRP-4C was a dream come true. The perfect blend of culture, humility and technological prowess surely makes Japanese people stand out from the rest of the world. Needless to say, the experience gave me a grueling but effective research exposure and an opportunity to learn from the best researchers in the world. Also, no weekend during my period of stay was boring as Japan offers a variety of interesting destinations and opportunities to mingle with their nature and culture, be it climbing Mt. Fuji or attending a Manga workshop! Thank you HOF!
