It was my great privilege to have been chosen as the ESCP/JSCP travelling fellow to Japan in 2013.  The fellowship allowed me to fulfil a long-lasting ambition which I had nurtured since many years after listening to the tales of my mentor Prof Bob Steele’s visit to Japan.  My main aims of this fellowship were to specifically observe and expand my learning of sphincter preservation rectal surgery, to experience the technical advances in minimally invasive surgery particularly reduced port surgery, and to interact with academic clinicians and scientists in Japan.

Ever since visiting Chūo General Hospital (Tokyo) in 1999 to visit dr. Junichi Iwadare, it has been my sincere wish to visit Japan again. The wonderful combined initiative by the Japanese and European Societies has finally made this possible for me.It was a great honour, to be selected for this wonderful opportunity. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my hosts, prof. Tadahiko Masaki and Dr. Hiroyoshi Matsuoka for organising and hosting my trip to and through Japan.

It was a great honour to be selected as the recipient of the 2011 ESCP Japan Travelling Fellow. This allowed me to spend a week at the world renowned National Cancer Centre (NCC) in Tokyo before attending the 66th Japan Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) meeting in Tokyo. During my research years in London, I had read many high quality scientific journals from Japan and had hoped that one day I would be able to visit and observe the Japanese health system.

It was my privilege to have the opportunity to undertake the Japanese travelling fellowship for 2010. This allowed me to visit the National Cancer Centre (NCC) in Tokyo and attend the 65th Meeting of the Japan Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) in Hamamatsu. I was given the freedom to suggest the units I would like to visit and, under the guidance of Professor Maeda, an itinerary was constructed which allowed me to spend a week at the NCC prior to the JSCP meeting.
