- The better understanding about nuclear power plants and radiation must be a help for my jobs, such as the preparation of manuals that provide nurses with the guidance on how to care the patients in the hospital. The experience of visiting a nursing home also gave me a chance to think about which way to go in my country.


- I felt enthusiasm and prides of the related persons of HICARE training.


- I came to know about the ongoing researches on Atomic bombing and also understand that the results of them has provided proper standards to the analogous incidents.


- After coming back home, I will utilize the knowledge and the true aspects of Atomic bombings that I gained through the training in the educating materials for nurses in my hospital. In addition, I will inform people around me that the danger of atomic bombs is overwhelming and emphasize that we should never repeat on the earth.


- It was excellent that every facility we visited proactively gave us the lectures on their activities and the research results.
