Aspiring Robotics Intern

I just finished my 5 month robotics internship in Japan and it was one of a kind. Professionally, my internship provided me with an invaluable glimpse into the world of Japanese work culture. The emphasis on precision, attention to detail, and strong work ethic was evident in every task I undertook. Collaborating with my Japanese colleagues taught me the importance of teamwork and effective communication, even across language barriers. Big thanks to Asia Internship Program for believing in me and my skills.

The importance of getting out of your comfort zone

Had a lot of fun! It was an awesome time, and I'd definitely do it again. You get to meet cool people, try amazing food, and have an unforgettable experience. Even if the internship isn't exactly in your career field, I still think it's worth giving it a shot. The staffs in the company are really nice and helpful, so don't worry about adjusting – you'll get used to everything quickly. I love Tokyo; it's the perfect city for an internship. My favorite part was visiting Mount Fuji – it was amazing to see the more rural parts of Japan. The schedule is flexible, so you'll have time to explore many other places in Japan. Tokyo alone has so much to offer; it would take years to see it all.

Best Trip Ever!

I've been to Japan several times, but doing an internship here is totally a new experience for me. With the the help of Asia Internship program, specially my account manager, I got to live in Japan for real, not just as a tourist They match you up with awesome companies. Although the accommodations there are pretty small compared to other countries, it's still clean and accessible to everything. Big thanks to the the entire Asia internship program team who worked really hard setting up fun events to make sure everyone enjoys their time in Tokyo.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I think it would be the Natto. I find it very weird to eat.
Pros
  • Very peaceful environment

Life-changing experience

I am very grateful to have been given this opportunity thanks to AIP who has believed in me.
At Sakura House company in Tokyo I had the opportunity to enhance my work experience, being able to put my knowledge into practice, especially in the field of study of my interest. In particular, I could appreciate the internationality and hospitality at the heart of this company, which I found in many of my colleagues.

Even if some issues with the organisation had occurred due to some company situations, thanks to my kind and friendly assistant Herlyn, I was able to manage everything at the end!
 
So, I would definitely recommend an internship of this kind here in Tokyo, and above all not to let fear of the unknown guide you, but to be guided by curiosity and the desire to open up to the world in order to grow and get to know new realities.

Pros
  • Personal growth
  • CV building
  • Work experience
Cons
  • Unknown reality
  • Some cultural differences
  • On your own

Cross-Cultural Learning: Internship Experience in Japan

Interning in Japan through AIP (Asia Internship Program) has been an incredible journey. I am immensely thankful for the opportunity they provided. The program not only exposed me to a vibrant work culture but also allowed me to immerse myself in the richness of Japanese life. The support and guidance from AIP were invaluable, making my internship experience smooth and rewarding. I'm grateful for the skills I've gained and the memories created during this fantastic adventure. Will really recommend this program. Thank you, AIP!

Beautifully inside and out

10 years! It was 10 years since I've been back in Japan and it looks even better than before. I first came here with my family and I instantly fell in love with the place. Every aspect of Japan when it comes to the culture, food, art just screams beauty. I already knew that this was the place that I want to end up in the future and I would like to thank AIP for making it come true. Not only did they find me an internship here in Japan, but they also found the right company for me to work with in the future. I still keep in touch with my colleagues and supervisor and are already in the discussion of a potential full time position. Things couldn't have been more clear to me and I have AIP to thank.

Remote Internship for a change

I had the opportunity to participate in AIP's newly introduced "Remote Internship" program. I've had my eyes on Japan for the longest time but the timing was just disappointing with the whole coronavirus attacking the whole word.

Nonetheless, my parents found out about AIP and introduced the opportunity to me, skeptical at first, I saw it as a great chance to actually get something done during this stay-at-home scene. My point of contact was very helpful and guided me throughout everything and made sure I was satisfied with my choices. They even took the time to check up on me from time to time just to see how I was doing, and I really appreciated that. The company I worked for gave me the necessary training and was actually kind enough to give me enough time to complete the tasks given considering the time zones. It would obviously be better if I was there in person, but this was good enough for me.

Safe to say, I have something to put onto my CV for the future.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Going through with this program in the first place was pretty nerve-racking but my parents helped me out and calmed me down enough to convince me that this was the right path.

Adventuring in Japan

Japan is a very interesting place and AIP did their very best to assist me with the transition of being a fresh graduate to finding and securing my first internship within Asia.

At first, it didn't look good with the amount of time it took to find one but once things started getting going it was very quick in regards scheduling and the feedback provided from my Rep.

Once I was in Japan things went by so fast in terms of the work as the company I was interning at had a few projects going on and they dropped me into the heart of everything. (joining in on Meetings and conference calls, shadowing my supervisors and assisting with daily tasks and of course my own personal projects.)

A few things could be different as the accommodation isn't the best but I felt comfortable after a while. For the people who are picky eaters, I would recommend Bareburger in near Sukiya Dori street.

What would you improve about this program?
Have the accommodation be a little more suitable for interns in Japan.
