y of Tsukuba took chance firstly. They presented about TIMSA, Japan (food, sport, entertainmet, historical and cultural place, etc), and Medical system in Japan. We were as representative of Muslim University of Indonesia took chance after TIMSA. Firstly, Vice Dean 3 of Medical Faculty, Muslim University of Indonesia, Dr. dr. H. Nasrudin A.M, Sp. OG gave speech in front of us. He thanked and tell about the purpose of this event by her own perspective, to do comparative study for development of our faculty of medicine and to initiate cooperation which may develop between both faculties in the future. Then, Representative of AMSA UMI, Susdiaman presented about Muslim University of Indonesia, our faculty, and surely AMSA-UMI. It was such a honour chance.
10. 00 – 10. 15 was performance from UMI. The participants of Medical Explore performed saman dance and flute. Some of TIMSA members watch them for the first time. We told us about what saman dance was and the meaning of song which was singing by Dwi Nawaluddin Naprisal.
10. 20 – 10. 50 was Cultural Workshop by TIMSA. They learnt us how to make an . origami. We were really fun and enjoy this moment. The participants of workshop were not only the students of UMI, but also our lecturer.
11. 00 – 11. 45 was Lunch. They served sushi for Lunch and some Japan snacks.
13. 00 – 15. 00 was University of Tsukuba visiting. he first visiting was Proton Medical Research Center Tsukuba-city Japan. We were given such a honourable chance to get an explanation about PMRC was by their Profesor. Tsukuba University has a long story and much experience in Proton Radiotherapy in Japan and the world, and has treated nearly 3,000 patients to date. They are constantly working to develop even more effective treatment methods through clinical research. By this time, we knew that proton radiotherapy is a kind of radiotherapy. The proton beam stops precisely at the site of the tumor, focusing peak impact only on the tumor, leaving healthy tissues unscathed. While some irradiation of normal tissue and organs adjacent the tumor is still unavoidable with proton radiotherapy, this occurs at much lower degree than with traditional x-ray radiation.
In PMRC, we also visited the facilities. They are Synchrotron, it accelerates the proton beam to near speed of light. Rotating Gantry, this was 200 + ton, over 10 meter, device rotates 360 degrees. With this device, irradiation angles can be set to avoid damaging critical organs. Treatment rooms (inside the Rotating Gantry) and Respiration-gating System, as one breathes, organs such as lungs and liver shift three or four centimeters. The respiration sensor monitors this movement, and irradiation is carried out at exhalation. The system was first developed by Tsukuba University.
The second, 14. 00 – 15. 00 was Tsukuba University Hospital Visiting. We visited Keyaki Plaza, Heliport, Hospital ward (business class), Lounge, and Emergency Department. What a luxurious hospital. They give the best services and facilities for their patient. We could find sophisticated technology everywhere. And heliport was the best place. It ais feature at Tsukuba University Hospital where they serve to facilitate MEDEVACs or air ambulance transfers of patients to trauma units or to accept patients from remote areas without local hospitals or facilities capable of providing the level of emergency care required. These heliport was located on the roof of the Tsukuba University Hospital. It was really amazing.
15. 00 – 17. 00 was Tsukuba Expo Center sightseeing. It was a Science Museum located at the center of Tsukuba, where many research institutes are gathered, and there we can watch, touch and enjoy the frontier of of sciences.
Then we left Tsukuba city and went Tokyo. We went to Shibuya, the place where we could found Hachiko statue. Who don’t know about Hachiko, a dog’s story. A true story of faith, devotion and undying love.
The 3rd day, okyo Sky Tree, Turkey Mosque for prayed Dzuhur, and Harajuku. Then we left Tokyo and went to Kyoto by Shinkansen.
The 4th and 5th day, on January 28th and 29th 2014. We traveled around Kyoto. Steeped in history, Kyoto is home to roughly one quarter of Japan's national treasures, countless shrines and temples, and seventeen sites recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Kyoto preserv Japan's oldest traditions, yet it is also a dynamic, contemporary city. Modern conveniences are readily available, making Kyoto a perfect destination for all of us looking to explore Japan's past. Shopping is also a unique experience in Kyoto, with merchandise ranging from traditional Japanese crafts made by local artisans to cutting-edge couture. Among Japan's many assets, Kyoto is one of the most prized, comparable only to the world's most dazzling places. We visited Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, Sanjusangendo, Kiyomizu-dera temple, Gion (Chionin Temple), Kinkakuji Temple, and Arashiyama.
Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine is the main shrine of all the Inari Shrines in Japan, and one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Kyoto. Sanjusangendo is the popular name for Rengeo-in, a temple in eastern Kyoto which is famous for its 1001 statues of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. Kiyomizu-dera temple is one of the most famous temples in Kyoto. It contains many Important Cultural Properties, including buildings and Buddhist images. Along the ravine to the south of the main hall grow cherry and maple trees. Gion (Chionin Temple) is a large and very popular temple. Its massive front gate, the largest of its kind in Japan, is an awesome sight. The grounds are often full of people who pray in front of the images of the main hall. You may see people standing in front of a large brazier, holding small sticks of incense, or waving the fragrant smoke over their heads in an effort to receive inspiration and wisdom. The temple also has the largest bell in Japan on its grounds, one that reputedly weighs more than several city buses. Arashiyama is a bamboo forest in Kyoto Japan. It is particularly attractive when there is a light wind and the tall bamboo stalks sway gently back and forth.. Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion) is a Zen temple in northern Kyoto whose top two floors are completely covered in gold leaf.
