We had a blast in Japan this past weekend at our two BX gatherings held in Kyoto and Tokyo. In Kyoto, we welcomed scholars from our new cohort and caught up with alums over fun icebreaker games and dinner at a local restaurant. In Tokyo, we organized a career panel session featuring four of our Tokyo-based alumni, who shared openly about their AFLSP memories, working experiences, the workplace culture in Japan, and challenges they have faced.

A big thank you to everyone who joined us at our gatherings – we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did! Special thanks goes to Dr. Zhao Liang from Kyoto University and BXAI president, Prof. Katsuichi Uchida, for joining us at our Kyoto and Tokyo events respectively; as well as Mr. Kenji Ueda and Ms. Mariko Seo from BXAIJ for making the Tokyo gathering possible. Can’t wait to see all of you again soon!
