As my expertise is in cyber security area and I also recognized that Fujitsu has Global Cyber Security department which is one of the top worldwide players in providing Managed Security Services, the desire to work in Fujitsu Japan was getting boosted.

Currently, I belong to head quarter of Fujitsu Global Cyber Security department which was particularly assigned in Managed Security Service unit.

For the first months living here, I found that it was challenging as I faced different problem both on work and daily live matters. But after several months, I could enjoy living here day by day.

With this quality of life, I could enjoy any part of my life.
