I have always liked the quiet atmosphere of the countryside. The first time I visited Japan, I didn't have a very good impression of the country because there were so many high-rise buildings. But when I came to Kanazawa, I took to the city immediately because of the rich nature and history that is evident here. I like the Higashi Chaya district the most in Kanazawa. We don't have a townscape like this anywhere in Korea. I also like cycling around the city, and often go to Kenrokuen Garden and Saigawa River.

This is actually my second time to study at Kanazawa University. The first time was when I studied here for about one year as an exchange student. Upon returning to Korea, I thought that if I was at Kanazawa University I can do the research that I want to do, so I came here again as a graduate student. My research is for people with disabilities. I am developing a system where they can use their mouth as a mouse to operate personal computers. I want to help build a society where people with disabilities can live just like able-bodied people.

I think all the Japanese students at Kanazawa University have cheerful dispositions and are very enthusiastic about studying. It could be midnight but I would see them still immersed in their research; but then again, they’re also very active in their club or circle activities. They seem to give their best in everything they do.


The teachers here are all very kind. If you speak to them about the theme of research you want to do, they would look into it in detail or prepare things necessary for the research so that there’s an environment where you can concentrate on your studies.

Kanazawa University also has an interesting spot. It is called an "ashiyu," a bath where you just soak your feet. I didn’t know what it was at first and thought, "What’s this!" But when I put my feet into it, it felt so good and relaxing. I think it’s great.
