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

116996 ratings | 4763914 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.

Also things that a typical japanese office worker does: - Breathing Air (very common) - Eats food - speaks japanese - lives in japan (very japanese) - leaves the house in the morning (as you would expect) - gets salary (very common) Just get rid of the typical, im going to report the video, it was a nice video but i hate clickbait and liars. Btw. everything you listed doesnt have anything to do with japanese office workers, its common around the globe.

Seems like a v nice Co. to work in. Its warm n friendly, well facilitated with almost all the essential facilities plus a bonus farm. And dinér is provided, a v rare treat from e Co. In short its an ideal place to work in. Japan has a very good n friendly work enviroment. Its one of the factors that causes Japan to success economically.

I work in an office in the UK & we're regarded as a progressive country. My office feels backward & 3rd world compared with this! Having been to many offices in the world, this is not typical. Sorry.

Japan work life is great. They get a guaranteed job out of college, the unemployment rate is ridiculously low and also statistically americans work more hours then japan, including unpaid overtime. I know a bunch of people where i live who need 2 jobs just to make ends meet.

How does this company actually attribute to society? I feel a lot of these office jobs are completely useless, a job just for the sake of having a "job". No one would notice if a lot of these firms ceased to exist. Have fun "working" until 9pm.

this seems like a normal office, you work, have gym and head out when you are done for the day. the freebies might not be there in all offices. but it's way better than the previous video of the guy who was virtually leading a life of a robot.

They r very well treated. It might noy be a case in most japanese company. They still spend all their life between walls and tight hieratchy though.. Dinner for them is probably free so they stay at the office more late Btw i would prefer to work in a farm anf have my small little barakment than being caught in a structure like that, omg

Wow, they would save SO MUCH TIME if they were willing to give up some formalities. On the other hand, they have a great office and the company seems to offer a way better life-work balance than the rest of Japan, so that's pretty good! :)

Good grief, go find a real life. Your job is not how you exist. I've seen delusional communist models work better than this. Grow a pair ... hopefully you'll have the misfortune to reproduce.

a oficina e mt boa ai no japao no brasil so tem lugar para trabalhar la dentro nem tem lugar para comer nem otra coisa alem de lugar para trabalhar e banheiro (the office in japan is very good the offices in brasil we only have place to work and restrooms we don't have any place inside there too it so its a little rush in the lunch time)

Cleaning up after yourself is quite normal in Sweden. Petting zoo is not ><. We do have some open office layouts but i dont really like it since Swedes is not that polite as Japaneese pepole . Even if we try to. Free food is not normal , you usally have to pay some for food at lunch but we dont have food after work.

Free food, discounted bakery, a farm in the middle of the building, gym at 10am, 5 star-like cafeteria, leaving work before 6pm yup. pretty much a typical japanese office worker in tokyo.
