A lifetime experience and exposure during my younger days. The three-month stint in Japan, especially in Suzuka City, Mie Prefecture, widened my horizon of understanding the struggle, culture, history, and development of the people in the land of the rising sun. IATSS Forum is a platform of idea exchange initiated from the hardship and success of Japan. It prepared real-life examples of a country limited with gifted natural resources, but through cultural dignity, intelligence and sacrifices uplifted their economy to its present-day unshakeable giant of the East. From the year 1985 onwards, Japan was my idol, focusing on logistics and road safety. IATSS Journal is one of my referred journals since the mid-eighties. It has provided me with current initiatives on reducing road crashes and injuries. In my transport lecture, Ta-Q-Bin Yamato (M) based in Japan was one of my door-to-door transport provider example that championed road safety and efficient delivery service. My fourth trip to Japan was in 2015. It had all started in 1985. Thank you, IATSS Forum.
