Can you imagine yourself feeling so lucky all the time? I couldn’t, until I got a chance to live in Japan. All the people that I met, all adventures that I experienced and all new things that I learned make me feel really lucky. Land of the rising sun impressed me not only with its nature, but also with the kindness of the Japanese people and its unique culture. ‘Vulcanus in Japan’ is a programme  that gives you an opportunity to add value to your career in the best Japanese companies and makes you enjoy talking new language with the local people. Briefly, this programme is amazing opportunity in any respect. I am so thankful to the people who initiated this programme and who helped participants in every step of this new life. I feel honoured to work in Hitachi with the people who accepted me as a real worker in the unit. Now, Japan is not only a country of technology and innovation, it is also my second home.
