What do you enjoy about Tsukuba (University of Tsukuba and Tsukuba City)?

I will have to say that there are just so many things to tell but the first thing that pop into my mind is to become able to participate in the Kyudo-bu’s activities literally every single day. To be honest I knew absolutely nothing about Kyudo until my second year here and the Kyudo that I imagined before bears almost no resemblance to the real thing. Nevertheless, fellows from Kyudo-bu still took me in and raised me into an adequate shooter in Kyudo improving both my mental and physical condition. Kyudo leads me to observe myself in a way I never thought about before, which undoubtedly benefits me a lot. More importantly, I've made progress in building reliable relationships with new people that I feel I can trust through Kyudo. Also the sport itself is always such a satisfying thing that rather thrills me. It feels like I found a world to escape from the engineering academic world when I got depressed and I love every single piece brick of this beautiful world.

What do you want to accomplish as a student of the University of Tsukuba during your study period?

Basically I have always been interested in all areas of science and engineering that it bothered me quite a lot when I was about to choose my major when I applied for University of Tsukuba. Luckily during the past around 30 months of studying in the College of Engineering System, the subjects that truly interest me have finally come to me. For now, I am considering in further exploration in system control or signal processing and I thank all the people who have helped me, all the professors, staffs and my classmates, for all their guidance and support encouraging me to find the things I want to do. I would consider my college career a success if I managed to become a capable engineer in the areas mentioned above, then figure out what I can do to repay all the gratitude I don’t deserve back. Of course making an athletic progress in Kyudo is also one thing I have always been longing deep down in my heart!
