    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.

  2. Very interesting video! How typical of a Japanese workplace is this, though? Seems very hip and trendy. Definitely not something you see everyday in US companies.

  3. Typical "No way this is a typical work office in Japan" but seriously I am impressed by this company. I know we are only seeing one day but I would be very fortunate to work at a companiy like this.

  4. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy this "A Day in The Life" series! As someone who's always loved Japanese culture but never been able to visit, it's awesome to see how typical Japanese people live (and work). Thanks so much, and please, keep this series going!

  5. When I was a pizza delivery guy I delivered pizza to Electronic Arts. I thought it was the single coolest place to work ever. They have a sleeping room, lounge area, deli, arcade room, and 2 mystery rooms with one door saying "left side of brain" and other door "right side of brain". God knows what they had in the parts of the building that I didn't get to see.

  6. i have nothing against japanese people. Very cool culture and all that but I want some japanese guy/girl to try a spoon or a fork to eat something and realize " Ou shit u can fit a lot in to these things "

  7. 中國人真的是全不正常的..enjoy my Facebook .BIG DEAL ..ps it is hidden post .HAHAHAHAHA .yes I stole you fuxking 97 leaflet ruined .are you 67 know English ? Go study first .

  8. Omg I love japan so so so much!!!! Its been a dream to visit there and marry a Japanese girl. I totally love their life sytle… I would not let anyones beliefs be left behind. Those people are very lucky to be where they are at. I think that is more.laid back then the american businesses….no joke!! Thank you for the great video!!!

  9. Love it…so sociable and employee-oriented. Looks to be more play than work but it’s no work if you love what you do, right:)

  10. Japan, ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️, dedication means a lot there, Their very hard working people. Awesome Video, Belus

  11. She bathed the night before….. commuted on a long journey….. trained in the gym in the same clothes, visited a farm, then went out for a meal. I would be ripe by then. Luckily the gym didnt look too strenuous. Dont think I would be going out to dinner until I had a change of clothes and a wash. Very different culture to see how heirarchy works there. Makes me wonder about other working cultures

  12. aww she's so sweet and pretty, and her personality is so bright it's a breath of fresh air from some other stuffy office worker vibes

  13. What a great video. It looks like you really took a lot of pains to edit it. It certainly bust a few stereotypes I had of Japanese office culture–specifically, working very late. I like the niceties that the Japanese have like letting others exit from first from elevators. They also seem very respectful about the food they eat, saying grace in their own way. Never expected to see a farm in an office building!

  14. tbh it's not obligatory but it's common in many countries in Europe as well to bring back little souvenirs or snacks from the holidays, it totally depends on the person but I've been raised well and will always do this when I can and people appreciate it

  15. axcept athe hot nights when you wake up all swet, the logic and reasonable time to take a shower is BEFORE going to bed. if you want to get fresh in the morning, wash your face with cold water and drink a cup of coffee or black tea! going to bed all sweaty and smelly is a little barbaric, like medieval barbaric, even if you go to bed alone. i don't think people who go to bed sweaty and smelly are washing their sheets and pijama every day.

  16. the work environment and atmosphere does make all the difference. i love where i work. well, i work remotely in a different city 4 hours away. but every time i fly in to the office, it's such an awesome experience. basically, you do whatever you want. of course, you have to get your work done. and there are so many snacks, you will never go hungry. missed breakfast or lunch? take your laptop, sit in the break room, and gnaw on some snacks. or take those snacks to your desk and work on your hunger there. it's the best to work at places that don't restrict you. of course, you have to be responsible enough to get your work done.

  17. looks like a nice life, not too different from office life in London, it's nice to see people enjoying their work

  18. Oh dear, a soyboy’s view of a snatche’s work day. Did you bring your knee pads laddy. How pathetic is this..

  19. Wow, that is a super office environment. Her boss seemed so polite and respectful of his employees. Everything one would need is in one office building, amazing. Relaxing gym, good food, we need this in the States!

  20. SOO ALL THAT SHITS GOING ON I HAVE TO ASK, DO PEOPLE ACTUALLY DO ANY WORK THERE??? OR DO THEY JUST READ THE PAPER, SHOP, HAVE LUNCH , GROCERY SHOP, WASH UR ASS, MORE FOOD, AND HIT THE SALOON, AND WHAT, FINALLY VISIT A DIRTY ZOO AT UR "JOB"?? LOOKS VERY TOUGH, SUPER BUSY DAY, BUT THEY GOT ALOT OF SHOPPING AND PERSONAL HYGIENETAKEN CARE IF NOTHING ELSE!!!!! … No wonder No work gets done in your countryThat's not a fucking humidifier you DUMBASS!!!! THATS A VAPORIZER THAT YOU PUT WATER AND UR FAVORITE SCENT EXAMPLE LAVENDER OIL IN WITH THE WATER AND IT JUST SMELLS GOOD!!! GOOD, YOU CHINKS MUST BE RETARDED LOL, AND I THOUGHT PEOPLE THOUGHT BAD ABOUT AMERICA LOL… THIS PROVES HOW LAZY AND UNINTELLIGENT CHINCKS REALLY ARE, ONE WOMAN HAD A VIRUS MASK ON, SLIPPERS AT WORK. AND YOU ACTUALLY ASKED HER HOW PEOPLE ARE SEATED ??? YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS A VALID ? ? LOOKED TO ME LIKE IT WAS PRETTY SELF EXPLANATORY HAHA. TURDBALL. 👎👎😴😴💩💩 I seriously need some good 💊💊💉💉🧴🧴after wasting 5mins really watching. I'm not really watching. I'm typing this while the wasteful video plays in background!!!!

  21. Congrats truly great video! I have failed lots of times but so thrilled to have discovered this web-site here PaidFast100 .Com (remove space) it can really help out newbies generate their first commission on-line. Really hope it may help you too

  22. Compared to this, my work routine now seems like labour camp. Free food, gym, flexible timings and rational boss, fantasy for me.

  23. A spokesperson said: “If breakfast is your preferred time to brush, it doesn't matter whether you do this before or after eating. “However, if it is the latter, you should wait an hour before brushing.” Acidic food, like fruit and juices, can wear down enamel, so if you brush straight away you might damage your teeth.

  24. i don't understand the idea behind the farm. like what gives? trapping animals in the MIDDLE of the biggest financial business district in tokyo makes no sense to me.

  25. awesome video! love the work enviroment but mostly, I love the camera work! 😂 keep doing these amazing videos!

  26. i refuse to believe that it's typical to have a zoo, take a break to work out, then take another break to eat, etc.

  27. Working from 9 to 6, plus one hour lunch break, seems quite ok. I always thought they work from sunrise to midnight, or until they drop dead in the office

  28. I wonder about US companies when I look at this……. we are incompetent . OMFG THEY HAVE A FARM, I WISH I WAS JAPANESE.

  29. Wtf , i though japanese had hard work , what the hell is this !? In my country it is far harder plus you get less money …
