  • Japanese work day at a Japanese office for an average Japanese salaryman in a Tokyo office. Living in Japan and working in Japan is quite a unique experience. This is a day in the life of Japanese worker, Makoto, 27 years old who lives in a Tokyo 3-story house with his family. This Tokyo salaryman works in a small Tokyo office, but spends many of his Japan working hours traveling from client to client on the Tokyo trains. Makoto works for a company called Mobal and as many Japanese salarymen, he entered the company straight from a Japanese University and he plans to spend his entire salaryman career at the same company. That is the life in Japan for a salaryman. We take a look inside what it's like to work in a small Tokyo office as well as to visit clients throughout Tokyo city area. His job experiences maybe unique to his company, but fundamentally he is very much an average salaryman. He commutes by train everyday to get to work and has to ride his mama-chari bike to get to the train station from his home. This Tokyo salaryman life has him arriving to work early and working late. As a salaryman, Makoto receives a standard salary every month for all the long work hours. The Japanese office is also configured so his boss' desk is right in front of him, quite a Japanese style office working environment. This very average Japanese work day and work lifestyle showcases a true day in Japan work life.Mobal- Hearts Coffee Club- Toe-Kyo Shirt Merch- in the Life in Japan Video Playlist- Channel Support ---Want to help SUPPORT my channel, buy me a BEER or Maiko and I DINNER?

    Sleeps in a single bed, in a shared bedroom, in his parents house, doesn’t have a car, no mention of a romantic partner, hours and hours of commuting everyday, and the job still isn’t done when he gets home. Makoto seems like a nice enough dude, and he’s a mentor for school kids, so that’s cool, but when does he get time for himself?
    Reminds me how fortunate I actually am.

    Now i understand why most anime's are based on high school students. They are the last days of any kind of freedom.

    I feel bad for Makoto if he is reading these comments. I was in the situation where I had to commute 5 hours every day and work literally took all time from 8.30 a.m to 7.30 pm without commute. I would come home just to sleep. In that situation, people telling how bad it is and making fun of him are the last thing needed.

    Japan's economy is like a V6 engine revving at 10000 RPM.
    the higher the population the more cylinder, the harder people work the higher the RPM.

    The more I see how people in Japan interact with each other in both business and personal settings, the more I realize how informal we tend to be here in the US compared to them
