SAIMS had not only provided me with an opportunity to experience a life in Japan as a student in a Japan’s Top university but also allowed me to receive a friendly introduction to Japanese cultures. During my 5 months stay in Tokyo, I was taught to learn, cope, understand and adapt concerning the smallest thing such as taking a train to the bigger thing like abiding even the most minor law in detail. I do have to admit that my life in Tokyo did bombarded me with tons of questions and without SAIMS I would not have gotten to ask myself any of these questions, let alone answering them. I was the first student from Mahidol to take this leap of faith to Sophia University along with SAIMS program and I am certainly glad I did.
