July 2017: Japan

This month I travelled to Japan for the first time, and it was a fantastic experience. I was away for one week, flying into Tokyo, before travelling to Fukuoka to give a seminar at Kyushu University. I then travelled to Hiroshima for a conference on strong correlations and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (CORPES17). I thoroughly recommend visiting Hiroshima, I was fortunate to be accompanied by Ivana and Jun from the APE Beamline, Elettra Sincrotrone, who kindly fed me Fugu. A weekend in Tokyo rounded off a very satisfying week. Until next time. David
