I came to Japan from China when I was 22 years old to study
Japanese technology. I joined Design City Japan after studying
at Japanese language school for 1.5 years and studied at
university majoring in mechanical engineering as undergraduate
and graduate student.
Mechanical planning was a lot harder than I imagined. The
knowledge required is wide and deep. You have to understand
everything when planning while keeping in mind about the
people who are going to build the actual mechanics, so you
really need your brain working at full speed. Yes, there are

me, I know I have to work even harder.
During my 2nd year at Design City Japan, I was assigned to be
in charge of making a platform of a large tower. That was the
first time I spoke to my clients over the phone. I was so

Senior employees give off-hour lectures every day. And I love
the city of Nakatsu. It’s close to the sea, and there are a
lot of green around the area. It’s similar to my hometown in
My dream is to be able to design in China one day. Then I
would find a new market in China. This is how I want to repay
