Day in the Life of a Japanese Car Repair Worker in Toyota

Day in the Life of a Japanese Car Repair Worker in Toyota

Living in Japan and working in a traditional Japanese office environment. This is a Toyota day in the life of a Japanese Auto Repair Shop worker, 30 year old, Erina. This is also a Japanese office tour inside of a Japanese auto repair shop in Toyota. We start this very typical day in her Japanese home, commute via Toyota car to her Toyota car repair shop. This is a day in the life of Erina and we get to see her with co-workers and Japanese mechanics in how they work in Japan. This is a peak into Japanese work culture as well as the work culture in Japan. We see her typical working hours in Japan and how it is working in Japan as a female in her position also known as a Japanese office lady, Japanese OL or Japanese salary woman. Her day in the life in Japan may be a bit different than some Japanese salarymen, but her experiences in the office and auto repair shop is quite common for Japanese employees in her position. The Japanese auto repair shop is also pretty common in terms of work-life. If anythings, the car repair shop is a very traditional office in Japan with Rajio Taiso, cleaning and work ethic. So all in all, this is an example of Japan life as well as Japan countryside life if you were to work in a traditional Japanese company. You should always be aware of Japanese culture when working in a Japanese office.

This easily could of been a PhD research project for you. Giving people ideas. Thanks for this great interesting video. Overall, humans are very alike, but Easterner are more mindfulness of others and more filial piety.

“It’s an anime car, What do you think?”

Fucking yikes

alexandergoldman says:

Hmm, watching morning TV news @ 1:35? Japan allows in-car dash systems to play video in the car WHILE DRIVING? That's not cool…thought Japan would be smarter than this..

章ウ一 says:

What time do people wake up honestly? How do you wake up and have time to take showers? I put my body on my bed at 12 midnight and roll around until 2:00AM or 3:00AM before finally falling asleep usually. I've even heard people wake up and go for a jog, then shower, then eat breakfast, then go to work. They must fall asleep at 6:00pm every night and wake up at 4:00AM.

Lizzie A. says:

I really love this episode and enjoy these day in a life videos. Hope you are able to make more.

revampted says:

I wish I can work at Japanese Auto Shop, seem pretty nice compared to the regular auto shop, you gotta have a good relationship with the sales tech to get the good paying jobs.
