Every year, RIKEN hosts hundreds of visiting researchers from top institutions and universities around the world. The RIKEN experience is an important and life-changing period for many of these visiting researchers — it is a time of not only scientific and professional growth through interaction with other world-leading scientists and exposure to world-class research facilities, but also a profound personal experience through intimate and daily encounters with Japanese culture. To provide a glimpse of the RIKEN experience, each month RIKEN RESEARCH presents a letter from a former visiting researcher on their time at RIKEN.
More information about the resources available to prospective RIKEN researchers can be found on the Life at RIKEN website.
