Welcoming Party



Hello everyone. My name is Ronald Brian A/L John Cantius and I come from Malaysia. It has been 2 months here in Toyota Kosen. To be honest, life was hard in the beginning. I had trouble in speaking, reading and writing Japanese. But thanks to my kind and helpful teachers, tutor, seniors and also my friends. They gave me courage and helped me to overcome these obstacles and challenges. As time goes by, I begin to get used to Kosen's life; both the dormitory life and the lectures. Here in Japan, the thing that amazed me the most is the Japanese culture. Japanese culture differs a lot compared to Malaysia's culture. I learned a lot of things by mingling around with my Japanese friends and seniors, especially the do's and don'ts. As for me, Toyota Kosen is situated in a strategical place. It only takes about 15 minutes by bicycle to get to the heart of Toyota City. And there are many convenience stores, book shops and restaurants nearby Toyota Kosen. After 2 months in Japan, I think that I am slowly adapting myself to the new environment. It took some time for me to merge myself with this new surroundings. I am very grateful to get this opportunity to pursue my studies in a place like Toyota Kosen. For those who are planning to pursue your dreams here in Toyota Kosen, do come and join us and never miss this chance.



Hello everyone! I am Nurliyana binti Mohd Redzuan from Malaysia and a third year student of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. It has been about 2 months since I enrolled as a student in Japan. As a foreign student who rarely been apart from family, this is the first time I study far from them. I can still remember how it felt when I arrived in Japan. It was cold at that time to the state that I kept shivering although I wore a thick jacket. I kept worrying about communication with Japanese. To be sincere, it is not easy to study abroad when there is a language barrier but with the help and guidance from my tutor, Hina-san, seniors, classmates and lecturers, slowly I managed to get through the difficulties and struggles compared to day one. As I cope with the dormitory life, I gained confidence to communicate with other people and helps me a lot on improving my communication skill as well as my Japanese vocabulary. The key to improve is by talking. The surrounding environment is calming. Shops and public transport are easy to access. As a Muslim, I have no problem living here and halal foods are easy to get. Hence, I will keep struggling and create moments for the new chapter of my life. Don’t hesitate to pursue your study here as they always@welcome you with warm hands.



Hello everyone, I'm Ives King from Malaysia, 3rd year student of Civil Engineering Department. I had arrived at Japan on 4th April 2017 and I've been staying here for about 2 months already. Somehow, I feel that time passes real fast. At first, I'm so worried about my life in Japan as this is my first time studying abroad. Questions like, how am I gonna reach to my Kosen right after I reach Japan, am I gonna like the Japanese food, will it be hard to communicate with the teachers over there or will I be able to understand the class. It is just normal worries which I think everyone should be worrying when they are going to a new place. Right after I reached at Japan, I can say that all my questions had begun to be answered slowly and smoothly. At the first day I reach at Toyota Kosen, they had a short briefing with me, introducing me the school compound, dormitory rules and also the canteen. First of all, food over here is just nice and filling. We have 3 meals per day, breakfast, lunch and also dinner. So basically, I don’t have to worry about any food. Each meal they will provide us 2-3 sets of food and students can choose their preferable food. Next, the dorm is just amazing. Inside my room, there's a bed, a study table, cupboard and they also provide us a blanket. Everything over here is just satisfying and we also have a small dining room for the foreign students. So, I should say there is basically no problem that should be worried about the dorm. Now, talking about how the teachers conduct classes in this Kosen. Basically, all the sensei will use Japanese language during the class. There is some time when I don’t really understand the class, but friends over here are really helpful. They are willing to lend me their notes and if I still couldn't understand, I will ask the teacher to repeat it to me again. Teachers and students here are so kind that they are so willing to help me out whenever I ask them. I can say that I'm very satisfied with my life in Toyota Kosen and there should be nothing to be worried about here.

SOR SOMETA (Cambodia) 3A

 SOR SOMETA (Cambodia) 3A

Hello everybody! My name is SOR Someta. I am from Cambodia. I currently am a 3rd year student in Toyota college majoring in Architectural design and Planning. Now it's been 2 months studying here, and life is really terrific beyond I used to imagine before I came here. Teachers, students, school staff, everyone is kind. Since the first day I've arrived here, Toyota College, I was welcomed warmly by the teacher, being showed the way to the nearby restaurants and supermarket by seniors, and having 3 meals a day with them for the first few days. What a relief! You might say that if I cannot speak Japanese well, it would be hard to live and study here. Well, I would say that it is completely a wrong idea. As I said everyone is kind. I cannot speak Japanese well, but in just 2 months, I could make lots of friends. They taught me the living style, culture, what to do and not to do. Teachers as well, I can discuss any problem with them. For instance, some part of the lesson I did not understand during the class or else, they kindly help me anytime. Ohh, I forgot to mention this, as oversea students, we have a tutor who is chosen by the teacher. For 3rd year students, we stay with our own tutor in the dormitory sharing the same room. So tutor is the one who can teach us a lot about everyday life as he spends almost every whole day with us. For me and my tutor, he teaches me a lot about the way Japanese think and the culture. He took me to barbershop, cooking food and having meal together. What's more, we had pizza together almost every weekend!! Isn't it fun?
It took me just one week to love the life being here. With no doubt, that is because of the teachers and friends here. And there're still a lot of new thing to experience and enjoy while I am here. I would love to say that there is NO REGRET studying here at Toyota College, Japan.



My name is Saruul (Saruulsaikhan Tsagaankhuu), 3rd year student of Architecture department. From this year I study in Toyota College about for 3 years. I have had a lot of new experiences since I came here in Japan. I like watching anime so I always wanted to come to Japan and have a trip. Thanks to this project, wish of mine came true. It was really grateful so that I decided to work harder than usual. I learnt that my roommate is so kind and a quiet person and my upper classmates are so helpful and reliable. I hope my friends in Mongolia come here and have fun with me that is my next wish. Some basic information about me: My friends say that I am a kind and reliable person. I have forgiven my friends for what they had done wrong and I think I never lost their trust. And I am good at doing projection and leading a team. When I team up with somebody, they always let me be their leader because they saw that I make good decision every time. Some bad sides about me are that I go mad easily and I care about few things which are precious to me. My teacher told me that I am really hard working. I always see the end of thing which I am doing.



Hi, I am Nur Atikah Binti Mazlan and I came from Malaysia. I am a third year student of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department. I arrived here on the 4th of April 2016, greeted by the beautiful cherry blossoms in full. Before I came here, I was very worried about lots of questions, like how my dormitory will be, my classmates and the most important is what I’m going to eat when I’m there. But everything turned out well, and the dormitory is really great and comfortable for self-study. I am also very satisfied with all the facilities offered here.
Since my Japanese is weak, I don’t really have the courage to talk in class and can’t really understand what’s going on in class. But my tutor and other classmates are really kind and helpful. My teachers are also caring and concerned about my studies here including my daily life.
As a Muslim, there’s no problem living here and obtaining halal food. I have also tried many types of Japanese food and use Japanese ingredients. I have learnt to be my own chef.
Last but not least, I am glad that I came here. Thanks to everyone especially my seniors who help us a lot in adjusting to life here. Through all the sadness and difficulties I have been through, I have confidence that in my future, there will be much happiness and lots of experience to be gained.
Thank you.



Hello, everyone. I am Syahirah from Malaysia, 3rd year student of Civil and Environmental Engineering. It had been two months since I arrived in Japan. Everything seems new to me, from its culture to lifestyle. At first, there were a lot of difficulties for me to adapt with the lifestyle and ways of study in Japan. But with many helps and guidance from my tutor, Miku and my seniors, now I can overcome all of the obstacles. I would like to express my gratitude to my lecturers because they willingly help me whenever I had problems and make sure that I understand each subject that had been taught. Studying in Japan right now give me a lot of experiences as I need to live in dormitories with Japanese and it is really necessary as I need to cope and interact with them. That is how I learn on how to communicate and be friended with them. In addition, my classmates always help me in my education. It is hard for me for the first time to learn in a new environment which is fully taught in Japanese, but with my friends' help I kind of get used to it. They also give me the best treat that I have ever received. They welcomed me and never treat me like an outsider. They also encourage me in my study and not just being nice to me. As a Muslim I must pray. Here in Japan my lecturers help me a lot in providing a place for me to pray because they know my priority as a Muslim. Other than that, the location of Toyota Kosen itself is strategic as I can access to many places easily because of the facility of public transport such as trains and buses. Therefore, I think that Toyota Kosen is just a perfect place to further your study.

LY SOK HENG (Cambodia) 4A

LY SOK HENG (Cambodia) 4A

Hello everyone!
I am LY Sok Heng. Born and raised in Cambodia, I would like to introduce myself as Alex, a nickname which I prefer being called here. I am currently a third year student in National Institute of Technology, Toyota College, majoring in Architectural Design and Planning. Here, it would be my pleasure to share about my first impression, college life as a fresh student in this college.
March 25th, 2016 was the day I first entered the periphery of this college. As soon as I arrived here, I was welcomed by teachers and seniors with warmth and honor. They were the ones who guided me with utmost efforts through the first and second week here of the things I must do. In addition to that, I was introduced to my generous and reliable tutor. I noticed that he was younger than I, in fact it would have been a mess during my first period of residence without his help. Everyone here is kind, helpful and friendly.
I am currently staying on campus, a double room with my tutor, and school is just five-minute-walk away. At first, I had no confidence on my Japanese communication skill, but I have to make friends. My tutor pays extreme efforts on introducing me to his friends, as well as classmates. I am enthusiastically accepted not as an outsider but as a friend. Furthermore, I am made allowances for my difficulties in Japanese during class and tests, such as being allowed to use electronic dictionaries and lessons being explained thoroughly and slowly in order for me to apprehend. College life is not as difficult as what I had been thinking in Tokyo, but rather interesting and exciting. I get to learn many new things and obtain many experiences. Everything here provides me the incentive to study hard and never give up. With these, I feel satisfied with the college where I belong.
My future aim is to become an outstanding architect. Hence, I must insist myself to study hard and pile up experiences and wisdom which bridges me towards my goal. I believe that innovation is what makes our society advance. I encourage myself to try something new and express it to everyone, by keeping in mind that, “We don’t know whether it’s better if we don’t try. Failure is not a shame but a lesson for us to modify.” Be smart and innovative! Unknowns exist waiting for you to discover. The future of this society needs us to become better.



Hello everyone, my name is Serchin (Serchinnyamgyal). I am from Mongolia, 3rd year student of Architecture Department.

It was very enjoyable. Toyota college is fulfilled with its study environment. Also Toyota city is urbanized. I am fully satisfied with my college life. During the next 3 years, I hope I can make many friends and broaden my knowledge skillfully.

Hi and nice to meet you

Muhammad Rushdan Bin Husmady (Malaysia) 5I

@Hi and nice to meet you, my name is Muhammad Rushdan Bin Husmady. I came from Kelantan, Malaysia. I’m studying in computer engineering department. My first time arrived here I was already in 3rd year. The time of my arrival to Japan was 2/4/2015. I can’t forget my first time I came here. The look on friends face when we first arrived here. The determination is shown in their eyes, and it has been a month for me and my friends furthering our study in this land of rising sun. And yet the fire has not faded away when I met them a few days ago. Thus also affected me to learn Japanese is yet another obstacle to be overcome. The first things that surprise me at Japan were the culture itself. For example, keeping their promises and never late to the promises time, keeping the place clean, and their kindness toward others. This kind of thing is seldom seen in Malaysia, but in every country there is always their good characteristic. The other things that gave a shock to me were the speed of bullet train and their time management. Even though it accelerates at high speed it can still maintain its smoothness in the carriage. Thus giving comfort to the passengers. Special thanks to sensei, my tutor and senior for helping me when I’m first arrived here. Now, slowly I have been able to adapt in staying in Japan.


Maheshan Sundaram@ (Malaysia) 5C

@Hello, everyone! Hope who are reading this are in pink of health. My name is Maheshan Sundaram. I`m coming from Kedah which is located in the Peninsular of Malaysia. In a nick of time, it has been a month since I arrived here and somehow I managed to get used to the dormitory life as well as the studies. To be frank, all the lecturers and students are very kind to me and I was astonished with the way they talk with me which makes me feel home. Apart from that, the dorm which is provided for students is occupied with great facilities. I’m sure that the students who have interest to pursue studies at Toyota Kosen will find it so convenient as the facilities provided here will sure mesmerize them. Intrinsically, in the aspect of study, as a foreign students, some people may find it very difficult to study here as all the subjects here are in Japanese Language. But, if you just follow the flow of the educational process here you will get used to it as the lecturers are very skillful in conducting the class. Studies aside, you can also experience a whole new world when you travel around Japan as the geographic atmosphere here will leave you speechless. In a nutshell, you are always welcome to pursue studies at Toyota Kosen and make sure that it will always be your number one choice.

From Bileguutee


@Hello, I'm Bileguutee, 3rd year student of Architecture Department.
From this year I study in Toyota College about 3 years, which means I have 36 months till graduation. But the time is a relative thing and depending on what to compare, it makes us feel slow or fast. I thought that if I spend all this 3 years as a normal student, it would just pass like running out of hourglass.
To me, last month was full of new experiencing month and my daily life was so busy. But even it was so busy, I tried to attend volleyball club of the college because of my interest. Also I am taking a bath in Ofuro with other students, and that was actually a new experience of Japanese culture. Japanese students are so attractive because they are very energetic and friendly with each other. Specially my classmates, I feel so happy when they’re communicating and having fun. The teachers and staffs are very kind; they always tend to help us. Finally my tutor Kenta, he helps and teaches me a lot of things such as kanji, Japanese food etc., also we are roommates. Maybe living with my tutor can be a good idea, which would allow me to experience Japanese student life more detailed. Toyota College is situated in convenient place where the surroundings are road of Sakura, beautiful garden and houses. That was great news to me who like photographing and walking.
As mentioned above, the time is running. Only I can decide whether I reach the goals or not. So let’s see what I will have done after 3 years.

Another Step To GO!

EA LIMSEANG (Cambodia) 5A

“Only try with our true efforts would the real success come about.”
Hello everyone!
With my great pleasure, I am glad to introduce myself as a new student in National Institute of Technology, Toyota College to everyone here. My name is EA Limseang. I am from Cambodia. I am now studying in the 3rd year, majoring in Architectural Design and Planning.
At the very first day of coming here, I received an honorable and warm welcome from teachers, went and took me from the train station to the college. When I first arrived here, I was fascinated by the breathtakingly beautiful environment of the college and was then thinking that this would be a great place to study for my college life.
At the time I first attended the class, it was really amazing that teachers and everyone in class were very friendly and they welcomed me enthusiastically. Till now, all class sessions are so interesting, with lecturers who are energetically teaching with their great efforts.
Having been learning Japanese in just a short period of time, I have to attend class with Japanese students. Therefore, it comes as no surprise for me as a foreign student whose first language is not Japanese that I sometimes face the language-barrier problem. I have been a bit struggling with Japanese language and I could not catch the lessons well, sometimes. However, just this kind of trouble could not stop me from what I have tried to achieve so far. What I have to do is to try my best to catch the lessons.
Fortunately, all the teachers here are, on the one hand, extremely kind-hearted and, on the other hand, are very eager to explain to any students who go and ask them any questions. In addition, all classmates are so kind and they are happily teach me Japanese when I ask them. Furthermore, there is a Japanese tutor for me; in case I have any questions I could ask him at any time. That is nothing if not great to have such a generous tutor.
Besides what I could learn in class, there are many things that I could learn from life in dormitory. In here, there are many tasks to do, rules to follow, activities to participate, and so on, together with other students. This, for me, is a part of great experiences in social life, and without which, we would not really be able to find those in class.
Overall, never before had I experienced such an extraordinaire life as life in here. It has been a long journey before becoming a scholarship student in Japan. So, it is a precisely wonderful opportunity to have a chance to study here.
