  • 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.

    If a man labored for 12 hours every day for 40+ years, he should have a castle, a mansion, and a dozen kids. Instead, we are quiet slaves who can't stop from shitting out more helpless children to endure the same mental and emotional torture. Then, the owners of all of these businesses make it "dishonorable" to do anything but those things which make them rich.

    Greed kills nations, enslaves peoples, makes humanity once more an animal. We are just animals now.

    I remember my fist job was at a dry clean
    I used to work there from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm
    I only worked there for a month and it was real hell cause I returned home late and didn’t have enough time to do anything for myself
    But I think that’s the norm in japan !!
    And yet they complain about their birth rates declining and more hikikmori appearing
    Japan is great but people need to understand life isn’t part of work
    Work is part of life

    これがホワイトと言える状況なのが問題なのかもしれません。つまりブラックが多いということです。日本も海外のように働きやすい環境になってほしい

    Long commute on crowded public transport, a dull office, menial tasks, pointless meetings, anal levels of politeness and a cultural expectation that doing more hours in the office indicates a hard worker with good character. 11 - 12 hours of your life have just passed you by on their way to some balance sheet.... This could just as easily be a British salaryman to be honest.

    This is Japanese.
    Please translate.

    日本ではこれがホワイトな環境というレベルです。この動画の問題は早入りや退勤後も家で仕事してる所、昼ご飯もゆっくり食べれず休憩できない所でしょうか?日本ではブラック企業がとても多いです。労働基準法に違反をしてる企業がニュースの記事にもなっていますが恐ろしい数です。この場合は本当なら9時から出社し18時に退勤するべきですが、多少の早入りはあっても早すぎな気がします。日本は低賃金なのに残業は多く、中には月の残業200時間させるという企業もあります。サービス残業と言い残業させといて賃金を払わないことも多いです。そしてパワハラも年々増えてます。ニュースでは大手企業でもパワハラを解決させないこともありました。しかもパワハラに罰則をつけないんです。人口減少も納得いく事だと思います。子供を産むハードルが高いんです。台風でも出社される所もありTwitterでも話題になりました。技能実習という形で外国人を雇用する企業はあります。しかし違法な長時間労働させて技能実習生が逃げ出すと、被害者である技能実習生を罰せられます。外国人の方は日本で働くことは避けた方がいいです。日本の経済や労働環境についての記事を見てください。ホワイト企業もありますが極一部と言えます。外国人の方に被害者になってほしくありません。有給も義務化しないと取れないような状況です。また、人口減少で苦しいのに子供産むと不利益な扱い受けたり嫌がらせ受けたりすることもあります。日本は先進国の中でも賃金が唯一下がったり、今は上がってもわずかです。余程いい企業に就かないと恵まれません。うつ病になる人も増え始めてます。完璧主義なのがいけないのでしょうか?日本で働くと仕事か家族かを選ばないといけない状況でもあります。僕はこれから就職する人間です。就職して自分が自殺に追い込まれたり、うつ病になったりするんじゃないかと不安です。海外の国の方、海外の方、日本は労働環境もっと良くするべきだともっと指摘してほしいです。働き方改革で良くなっているとは言えないと思います。残業できなくなり持ち帰り残業が増えてしまったという口コミをたくさん見かけました。部下を早く返さなければならないから管理職に残った分が回ってきて管理職の人が病院送りになるので出世したい人はとても少ないです。残業が減り収入が減り生活が苦しくなる状況でもあります。中にはローンが返済できなくなり家を手放す人がいるとニュースで見ました。残業しないと生活しづらいんです。残業前提なんです。給料貰ってるんだからそれくらいやれということだと思います。理不尽なクレームにも対応しないといけないところもあります。さすが外国人の働きたい国ランキング33カ国中32位の国だと思いました。この結果はネットでは「当然の結果」「そりゃそうだろ」という肯定の声が見られました。しかし日本が悪いのは労働環境くらいでいい所も沢山あります。日本人は優しい人も多く、素晴らしい観光名所もあります。日本に来るのは働くためではなく観光目的で来るのがいいと思います。日本で働きたいと考えてる人は日本の現状を調べてください。日本の労働環境がもっと良くなってほしいという想いを込めてコメントしました。
