[2] Trip to Ashgabad from April 19 to 26, 2015

         By Dr. Toshiaki Yokoi, Director of IISEE
This is my second visit to the capital of Turkmenistan. The first one that was four years ago became unforgettable for me, because I got informed in the international airport of Istanbul on the way back to Japan about the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster. Ashgabad has been developed much, and the scenery in the city that became more beautiful than that of four years ago let me remember the days I had been there.
