-I was able to learn more about the detailed and actual damage from the medical aspects.

-I will actively participate in medical check and diagnosis for the atomic bomb survivors in Korea to be able to fully apply we learned.

-I feel empathy for Korean A-bomb survivors who come to our hospital.

-I was deeply saddened by the fact that the damage caused by the atomic bombs was not only temporary, but would haunt them for the rest of their lives.

-It was a meaningful opportunity for me to think deeply about the threat of nuclear weapons, the brutality of war, and the suffering of atomic bomb victims.

-It is also a good opportunity to improve the misperceptions in my country regarding the Fukushima "contaminated water" discharge
