My Life in Tsukuba
March 25, 2013 11:09 AM
It has been two years since I came to Tsukuba. When I think of Tsukuba, I imagine countless trees, academic atmosphere and convenient life environment.
When I first came to Tsukuba, the first thing I noticed was many trees and fresh air. As I open the window in the morning, the wind that carries the smell of the dirt touches my face. When I begin my study of the day in such environment, it feels very good. The trees in the city are very tall. In the summer, they cut off the ultraviolet rays to some extent. They are also strong against typhoon. When I have time, I go for a walk in the tree-lined street, and I can feel the special beauty in it.
Tsukuba is a well-known science city. There are world-renown University of Tsukuba, prominent research institutes, and Tsukuba Science Information Center where you can visit for learning. It is a place where students, researchers, and the public can learn and experience science. In this way Tsukuba City is Silicon Valley of Japan. Various academic conference and lectures are held at Tsukuba International Congress Center. In this city filled with such academic atmosphere, I am highly motivated to study hard.
Tsukuba City is a place where nature and modernization come together. The best part of the city is its convenience of the life environment. Some people say Tsukuba City is rural, but I think it is a good place to live. It is only one hour away to Tokyo with Tsukuba Express train. Facilities for entertainment and cars are less. So it is very quiet and I sleep well at night. If you have time, you could take a trip to Tsukuba Mountain and enjoy hot spring, or take a ride in the bike, visit many places, and enjoy the beautiful nature.
