This is exactly why I myself became a “flying Dutchman”, when I chose Japanese diplomatic service as my first profession. When I was a student, I couldn’t help feeling frustration every day. Of course, it doesn’t mean I didn’t work hard to pass exams I faced. On the contrary, I did really my best and pass the entrance exam of Japanese diplomatic service at the age of 20. Nevertheless, the unsatisfied state in my mind never changed itself in the course of time. I made up my mind to flee to Berlin, the city of destruction and construction.
