My internship was in Yokohama National University duration December 16, 2013 to March15, 2014. I had many experiences to impression who was research student in that university. I researched about wind effect on bridge structure, the preliminary of calculation about Cable Stay Bridge, and I had an opportunity to use program Midas Civil software to design Cable Stay Bridge and suspension bridge. I saw abutment of Mishima bridge structure to help me to see beautiful view of fuji Mountain, I went to Akashi Kaikyo bridge in Kobe city for sightseeing about structure of bridge, and I had special time to go up in tower of Akashi Kaikyo bridge (The world longest center span). I saw Asimo demo who was clever like human, other that I saw the earlier sakura and ume flowers in ueno park, Tokyo. As for sakura they called kan sakura (カンザクラ).

My impression in Japan was the convenience system as transportation, comfortable service, high and modern technology for design high way bridge and subway even the bus and airport had priority seat for old people, pregnant or less able to stand. Japanese people very kind and amity, foods were delicious and beautiful decoration and the lastly, I saw fuji mountain and met Asimo as a both of things were the representation of Japan.
