Yabuta Tomoya (藪田智也), 23, has been employed at a machine tool manufacturer after graduating from the Nagoya School for the Deaf in 2011, working at the assembly in Aichi Prefecture, central Japan.

He visited the training building with the boss and gave instruction to eight students in the advanced course of the machine department in his alma mater.

After the training, Yabuta sent an encouraging message to them, "I want you to learn high skill and to challenge craftsmanship."

One of the students who received instruction said, "Even if I have a disability, I would like to follow him who plays an active part in a high level."
