NURRUL Enshan binti Norrahim considers herself fortunate for the opportunity of a study trip to Japan.

A student of Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA), Nurrul Enshan was one of five students recently selected by the Brunei-Japan Friendship Association (BJFA), working in close cooperation with Mitsubishi Corporation (Brunei), to visit places of interest including the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo and Koyasan University in the Wakayama Prefecture.

“This is a one-in-a-million opportunity for me to visit places of interests in Japan,” said Nurrul Enshan, adding “I will be visiting a local Japanese university; hopefully I can impart some aspects of Brunei culture to the community there, and also learn about the Japanese way of life.

“During our time there, we will learn how liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Brunei is transported to Japan, and how it is processed. The trip will be an invaluable learning experience, and my hope is that I can share knowledge with my peers when I return to Brunei,” she said.

The trip aims to give participants first-hand experience of how LNG from Brunei is used in Japan, while learning about energy conservation and manufacturing technologies, and experiencing Japanese culture through interaction with Japanese students.
