Day in the Life of an Average Japanese Salaryman in Tokyo

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.

  1. My Day in the Life Video Series Playlist –
    Also, Comment on what other Day in the Life vids you want to see!

  2. Everybody here saying this looks depressing, i have to disagree, the cooperation and upbeat energy seem really cool. But of course everything in life is about balance, so for sure he should have more time for himself and for people he loves, but i still found it cool

  3. Ah , well.. hopefully he doesnt have a dead end job… or a female boss that makes him feel like being born was a crime or something and he is a waste of resources and salary….. I heard that happens and people just off themselfs

  4. These hours are insane. The video title should be "Day in the life of an average Japanese wage slave".

  5. These are really well made videos. There's something I absolutely love about glorification of 'the mundane.' When I first started reading Haruki Murakami books, I remember my favorite scenes being ones where the character is just hanging out listening to classical, drinking whiskey and petting his cat.

  6. personally i think it's good, he gets a lot of movement during the day. i work for a company in the USA (I'm american) most workers don't move and we all get very fat……
