Professor Ikeda returned to CRC after 8 months of absence. He went back to Japan in Febuary, 2020, and went to return to CRC after staying for one month in Japan. But COVID-19 started in the world and he got stuck and could not come back to Thailand without the Certificate of Entry to be issued by Thai Embassy Tokyo. It took a long and a hard time to get the COE but finally he could get it and could return to Thailand on the 1st of Oct. He could not come to CRC immediately, however, as he should spend two weeks in a hotel. We are happy to see him again in CRC and he and his students are enjoying CRC life.
