I discussed the research proposal with the professor willing to accept me.

For the first screening, it's conducted by the embassy ( english and japanese exams, then interview)
After passing the first screening and getting the letter of acceptance, the second screening is conducted in japan by MEXT...I'm not exactly sure what they do in the second screening.

The final decision should be normally in January.

How did you go on with your letter of acceptance? Did you by any chance use the Sustainable Energy Program(SEP) preliminary application form?. The website says to send this preliminary form to both coordinator and the faculty at the same time. I wanted to know what you did on your side.

Hey okabe :D
Sorry for my delayed reply.
For my LoA I contacted directly the professor, I didn't use SEP application form.
After a long discussion (about my research proposal) and an interview with 3 professors (presentation of my graduation project and a plan for research in japan), they decided to give me the LoA.
Actually I passed the second screening done by MEXT, and still waiting for the final decision.
What about you ?

Hi Okabe,

Like MedRamy, I also applied to Tokodai (Tokyo Tech) for Chemical Engineering. I was going to apply to Mechanical Engineering, but Kubouchi-sensei in ChemE does research closer to my interests so I switched. However, I have talked with Mizutani-sensei from MechE a lot and he is very nice, very smart. What area of aerospace do you want to study? Materials/mechanics, dynamics/controls, or flight/fluids?
