This will be boring to most of you, but I told you that I am a student. Let me elaborate a bit. :o)
Currently, I am a PhD student in the University of Tokyo, Japan. I thought of posting a few photos from my university, though they might not be as interesting as the festival stuff.

A PhD in Japan is much better compared with the situation pictured in PhD Comics :-p. One can complete a PhD in 3 years, 90% of the time (the others usually take an extra semester). The situation with funding is generally quite good (that explains why I get to travel a lot). The coursework requirements are not so high, leaving enough time for research and enjoying life. Japan is a safe and nice place, with lots of kind and helpful people. You need to learn the language, but it is not hard once you are here.
As for me, I am in the 3rd year of my PhD. I had my pre-defense yesterday, where I presented the current status of my research to a panel of professors. They were happy with the work, and gave me the green light to start writing the thesis. Now I can relax a bit and enjoy the summer vacation, before I do.
So much for my studies. If anyone is interested in more details about graduate studies in Japan, I will tell you what I know.
