The April Research Meeting of the Radio Communication Systems Society (referred to as RCS) of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE) took place on April 13th and 14th at the Matsue New Urban Hotel.

I traveled by Shinkansen from Hiroshima Station to Okayama and then took the “Yakumo” Limited Express train from Okayama to Matsue.

The title of my research presentation was “Reception of high precision satellite navigation signals sent from Michibiki and Galileo.” It pertained to high-precision satellite positioning.

The social gathering took place at a wonderful venue overlooking Lake Shinji. The sunset over Lake Shinji should have been very beautiful, but we were engrossed in conversation.

After the social gathering, there was a night session where I had the opportunity to listen to many interesting discussions about railways.

The final day’s sessions concluded before noon. It was a fulfilling research meeting where I had the chance to engage in conversations with numerous researchers.

With some time to spare until my train departure, I took a stroll around the area. I had lunch at Sunrapport Murakumo Village.

Additionally, I went to a museum dedicated to Lafcadio Hearn, the author of the Japanese folk tale “Rokurokubi,” to learn about his life.
