I was one of the residents who stayed in Seattle dating from the 1st of March in 2005 for 7 months as a visiting scholar at the University of Washington on the grant provided by the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

To be honest, before the departure for Seattle, I used to be much involved in the works associated with arrangements of my own research projects, a result of which did not allow me to think about the issue of new life.

I had a little trouble finding my apartment. As for myself, I deeply felt regret that I should have done enough preliminary survey of housing prior to my departure for Seattle. I should have known the Visiting Scholar Association (VSA) in advance and contacted them before I left Japan.

Luckily, however, I had the good fortune to meet Gary, who is a president of the VSA, and he introduced the services for visiting scholar. Meeting with Gary enabled me to be invited to dinner for visiting scholar and other activities, and enrich my life in Seattle immeasurably.

Thanks to the VSA's tips for life in Seattle, they enable us to create a multicultural citizens' community that supports scholars in their academic endeavors and cultural enrichment. There is also an opportunity to develop new friendships, meet a wide range of people, and feel more at home.

On my second visit, when my wife, my graduate student and I visited Seattle in spring this year, Gary extended his warm hospitality to us and accepted us in his house for a few days. I am sure that my friendship with Gary's family shall be lasting for many years to come. My wife has joined me in sending him Shower of Appreciation for whatever he has done for us.

I was able to broaden my perspective by joining the community and take with a lot of people.  I strongly recommend to be a member of the community to communicate with international people.
