Something I found about Japan.

Something I found about Japan.
People in Japan, and Tokyo in particular, work a ridiculous amount, in a way that’s hard to comprehend if you live in, say, sunny California. Take a former student of mine, Naoko, who worked as a programmer. She worked—wrap your head around this—twenty hours a day.

“Every day at 4 a.m.,” she said, “they’d turn off the lights and we’d sleep at our desks for four hours.

“Did you have locker rooms?” I asked. “What about clothes?

“I just wore the same clothes, but on Sunday I’d go home for half a day, to shower. The men only went home once a month.

“That must have smelled pretty nice. How long’d you do that for?

“Five years and three months,” she said.

Okay, so maybe that’s an extreme example. A more typical case is probably my former student Masahiro, who’s an executive at a famous beverage manufacturer. He works from 9 a.m. until to midnight, six days a week, with a 15-minute lunch break at his desk. He has Sunday off, which is when he studies English.

“I have it easy,” he said, “since I work at an international company. Japanese places are a lot worse.”

“Do you ever see your wife?” I asked.

“I see her on Sunday,” he said.

“But Sunday’s when you come here to study English,” I pointed out.

“Ah, good point,” he said.

For most people, it comes down to two choices: work like mad as a single person and have a tiny apartment full of dirty clothes and half-eaten Cup Ramen containers, or get married. That way, the man goes off to work, and when he comes home after midnight, his dinner is sitting on the table covered in Saran Wrap, and there’s hot water in the tub. His wife and daughter are already asleep. Shopping, ironing, cleaning, paying the bills, everything’s taken care of for him. All he has to do is bring home a paycheck. The woman gets to do all the fun, fulfilling things like taking care of baby, grocery shopping, cleaning, and cooking meals. Sometimes I’ll ask my adult students how often they see their spouses, or ask the kids when they see their fathers. The answer is roughly on par with how often I’ve seen the Easter Bunny. I am, however, a big fan of marshmallow Peeps, so maybe it’s not as infrequent as you think.

The young Japanese people of today grew up watching their parents live this life, and it’s understandable if they’re not thrilled about this option. Marriage isn’t a great choice; it’s just the second-worst option. For a man, it means he’s working to pay for his wife. For a woman, it means a life of indentured servitude. A lot of people are apparently “just saying no” to the whole thing.

Strange Bottle

Strange Bottle
Evangelion ?
$3.50 for vending machine soda ... Maybe because of the shoe of the bottle.
I should have bought it.

Japanese People are Not So Religious

Japanese people consider themselves most as Buddhist and Shinto Believer. But they are not so religious at all. They go to Cristian church in the Christmas and go to Shrines and Temples on the New Year Day. People wed in Christian Churches or Shinto Shrines to Buddhist Temples depending what they feel like.

Because they do not belong to one religion, they don't have much opinion about any other religion either. So when you see Japanese people praying at temples or shrines, do not think they are very religious. In many cases, they are praying "JUST IN CASE" most of the times.

Relax in Japan

Relax in Japan
When I travel to Japan, I usually spend most of my time in the city like Tokyo and Osaka. But once in a while I get to travel and relax at countryside. Japanese garden and onset (hot springs) are my favorite spots. Eating traditional Japanese food is so relaxing too.

Truck Size Difference

Japan Japan

When you compare FedEx trucks in Japan and the US ... This represents the size difference. I thought it was funny.

Typical Japanese Car

Typical Japanese Car
Most popular cars in Japan are so called "One Box Car". They look like a box ... maximum space inside. People do not drive very fast in Japan. So they are not designed to go fast or quick. That may be one reason why many American cars are not sold well in Japan.
