Day in the Life of a Typical Japanese Office Worker in Tokyo

158091 ratings | 6820421 views
Living in Japan and working in a Tokyo office - This is a Tokyo day in the life of a Japanese Office Worker, 24 year old, Emi. This is also a tour of her Japanese office, Pasona. We start this typical day in her Japanese home, commute via train to her Tokyo office in Otemachi and spend a day in the life of Emi at her working place. We see her typical working hours in Japan and how it is working in Japan as a female in her position. Her day in the life in Japan may be a bit different than some Japanese salarymen, but her experiences in the office with chorei, senpai / kouhai, and kenshu is a very typical in experiences in many Japanese offices. If you want to know how work in Japan or want to know how work in Tokyo, this could be how your job in Japan could be like. The Tokyo office itself, is probably an above average Japanese office in terms design and the business culture a bit more progressive than most traditional Japanese companies, but this Japanese company still maintains a very traditional Japanese office environment. So all in all, this is an example of Japan life as well as Tokyo life if you were to work in a Japanese company. You should always be aware of Japanese culture when working in a Japanese office. This Japanese office has a gym, English school and even a farm all in the building. Pasona is one of the largest staffing services company in Japan. There’s about 4000 staff in her office alone and about 9000 in total worldwide. Pasona Office - Map Link https://goo.gl/maps/rJ3HYDzcLoP2 Offices: - Japan: 113 Pasona Group offices (even more if we include our subsidiaries) - Worldwide (including Japan): around 400 Global Locations: - 58 sites in 15 regions. --- Channel Support --- Want to help SUPPORT my channel, buy me a BEER or Maiko and I DINNER?

Find me on Instagram: PaolofromTokyo & Toe-Kyo Merch - https://teespring.com/stores/paolofromtokyo As a Typical Japanese Worker in the video, you'll see that Emi: - still lives with her parents (very common) - still works for the same company she started with after graduating university - takes baths at night - doesn't have a lot of time for breakfast before work - commutes to work 1 hour one-way everyday by train - arrives to work early before company hours - sits in an open seating environment with co-workers and mangers all sitting together - attends the traditional company morning meeting, called Chorei (very Japanese) - receives Omiyage from co-workers who came back from trips - performs regular desk and PC work throughout the day (as you would expect) - attends planing meetings as required for her job throughout the day - takes a 1-hour lunch break with co-workers - respects company seniority and uses the appropriate language to address her superiors - leaves the office when she finishes her work. On this day, she finished her work on time when on other days she may have to stay behind...as you can see other people in the office still remained since they didn't finish their work yet. - meets up with the girls after work to have a dinner / drinks - All of the above is what you could expect to see in a day of a "Typical Japanese Office Worker" or "Salarywomen in Japan" Let me know in the COMMENTS if you DISAGREE. LIKE if you want to see more Day in the Life Japan videos.

In Turkey , officers are forbidden to read newspapers during worktime, workers cannot go to gym eventhough they are computer engineers or electronics engineers in well known companies, they can eat only 4500 calorie lunches at the company restaurant if there is any of it. Hardwork is must, for bankers, being single for auditors for 10 years is must, for most workers they cannot give birth to any child, bosses in Turkey will immediately change those workers with single ones. Workday begins at 7.30 at many private businesses in Turkey, in public companies no need to be in hurdles like those , you can drink coffees , teas and chitchat during worktimes. 3.75/4.00 cumulative GPAs are must in order to enter into engineering jobs at many electronics industry in Ankara, Istanbul with english proficiency. Wages are very low in Turkey and one cannot work very long years in one job, it depends on bosses which are very competitve and have very high tresholds to move forward in jobs of your same company. In Turkish public companies, American earned masters and doctorate are musts in order to be General Manager in that company. My civil engineer friend's family members were general manager and vice general manager at public companies in Turkey and they are from Istanbul Technical University Mechanical Engineers , now pensioners and have 7 years old Honda Jazz car , fully loaded; old Opel Vectra car and 4+1 bedroom apartment in Ankara Turkey, also small summer villa, 3+1 bedroom in Fethiye Turkey. Turkish public general manager earns 2500 USD per month and private sector general manager earns 9000- 10.000 USD per month in Istanbul. There is no lifelong work opportunites in Turkey, I have changed 10 jobs in various departments and now pensioner at the age of 42 years old. My aunt(2 years university alumni) was secretary of general manager at public company and she also got her pensionership at age 41 years old, now 74 years old and healthy in Ankara Turkey. I have got education in english language same as Spanish citizens in duration, 2 masters degree, one unfinished and 8 months of compulsory military service. Some turkish banking ex general managers live and have vineyards in Manisa city nearby Smyrna city in Turkey, others are in Istanbul city with their granddaughters and grandsons. Istanbul and Antalya have 320, 5 star and upper class 4 class hotels in each city, many are operated by foreign owners from Germany, Austria, Spain, Americans.

This is such an obvious click bait title for views. I keep hearing that work is like hell for the "typical" Japanese worker; but the featured person in the video clearly has it so much better than most Japanese. You could've re-titled the upload simply as, "How a Fortunate Office Worker Goes About Her Business while Working at a Super Prestigious and Progressive Company." At least there wouldn't be anything misleading about that. Just sayin'.

From all your videos what I realize from workforce in Japan. Is that that many companies and employees actually respect and acknowledge each other all the time and paid well. In the USA that's the main reason people quit their jobs and people quit their jobs a lot here.

Requests: -Engineer in daily life -Game artist in daily life at Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio in Shinagawa, Tokyo. If Archipel was allowed to film Keiichiro Toyama's daily life there and they have a annual Fun Meeting where game creators meet game fans then it shouldn't be a problem with a game artist. They would probably allow a tour in the building if you can stand 18 floors excluded underground floors lol
