As we all know, working and living anywhere is essential and important for a better life. We all have dreamed of quality of life, good health, money, family, happiness, and many other things. I am going to tell you about a 29-year-old boy who has been working in Japan since 2021 and how he has been able to cope and manage the languages, work, food, travels, etc. You will surely learn something from this post, and if you are planning to visit, work, or study in Japan, you should definitely read this because it will be very helpful for your day-to-day life in Japan. 

So let's get started. He is 29 years old, he holds a degree in computer engineering, and he has some experience with computers, programming, blogs, etc. He has hobbies like reading books, playing cricket, listening to music, and talking with friends. Furthermore, he studied Japanese in his country for about 1 year, as he can speak the basics and communicate with Japanese people quite well. He is learning languages fast. He came to Japan in December 2020 through Narita Airport during the time of the coronavirus and stayed near the airport hotel booked by the company that is taking care of him. He stayed for 4 days in a hotel; after that, he shifted to his own apartment for the other 10 days of quarantine, as 14 days of quarantine are necessary according to the WHO and the Government of Japan. During these 14 days, he does not have any ideas what to do or where to go. He cannot meet with friends or company people during the quarantine period, but company people talk with him through Skype, Zoom, etc.; he does not feel alone. After quarantine ends, his work started in January 2021, and the company was in Toyoshu, Tokyo. He woke up at 5:00 am for work, and he sleeps at 11:00 pm, I know, but wait, I am going to explain in brief about his busy day.

 Let's get started. He wakes up at 5:00 am and do exercise, jogging, and yoga after that he starts to cook, or heat on oven, or raw food eat before 7:00 am and dressed up till 7:20 am and leave for work from this time, and at7:35 am he reached to the nearest station (Yurigaoka Station) where there is a way to enter station by swapping his train card (PASMO CARD) at gate of entry and at exact 7:37 am train arrive, and he was standing in line for train when train arrive he waits for other passenger to leave and then he enters inside the train, train has handrails, best seats, the best view inside and very comfortable with AC, cooler etc., after 10 minutes in train he arrives at other station and transfer to other platform, station was (NOBORITO STATION) he then uses escalator to go down and a way to swap train card again and went to other platform where he needs to swap again to enter after that he waited for train coming and the crowd was very dense and people are hurry by carrying their bag in front and running so that latest train may not miss. Most of them carry their bags on their fronts. After trains come from both sides, both trains travel to the same place, Kawasaki station. You can ride with anyone to reach your destination. After that, for check-out, you must swap at last and climb stairs or an escalator, your choice. You go to the upper floor and again use an escalator to get down to the road. Cross-road using zebra crossing and arrived at the office; after that, use sanitizer at the front gate of the building. He rides a lift to his office on the 21st floor, etc. He went to the office gate, used his MEISHI CARD to open the gate, and went to the locker. He put all the things, like bags, mobiles, and bento, inside the locker, took his PC from the locker, and went to his own desk like a cabin. He works till 12:00 p.m. and then takes a lunch break for 1 hour. In 1 hour, he uses a tiffin for a food pack made by himself some time bento, a Japanese lunch box. He usually carries his own food to work, eats in the underground canteen, then again works from 1:00 p.m. to 17:30 p.m., returns to the locker as always, puts his PC inside the locker, takes his own things, and checks out using his office card from 17:30 p.m. onwards. He returned to the same station and returned home the same way he came; sometimes he used to buy food from stores, malls, etc. He returns home at 7:30 p.m., and while he returns, he is very tired. Then he starts the AC, opens the glass windows, uses a towel, and lays down in bed. Sometimes he rests and after that, he cooks food, talks with family, eats, and at 11:00 p.m., he goes to bed and sleeps. Next is the same as above, from Monday to Friday. This is the work-life balance schedule. But Saturday and Sunday he slept all day long.

 I am going to tell you that if you wish to visit Japan to work, you should know about electronic devices like washing machines, vacuum cleaners, throwing waste outside (in a proper place), bath tubs, refrigerators, baking tools, hair dryers, using irons, etc. Devices are in Japanese, which you will find difficult to use at first, but when you learn slowly, you will understand. He is living the lifestyle he has dreamed of. But he has only limited people to talk to. He feels lonely sometimes, like he is eating KFC food and feeling alone like that. Ha-ha… He has to speak in Japanese most of the time, and he felt good. He has learned a lot of things, like how to work with patience, confidence, and great work. Likewise, he learned new things daily and enjoyed the time spent in such a beautiful anime country. Likewise, some other foreigners also do almost similar activities and spend their lives properly. I am going to tell you about cards. He has a lot of cards, like a residence card, an insurance card, a cash card, my number card, an IME card, a mobile card, an office card, a train card, and you already know debit cards, credit cards, and others. Most people use cards only for shopping, buying things, etc. Japanese stores like Lawson, 7-11, Family Mart, etc. are the famous convenience stores in Japan. Also, they are very generous and kind people living in Japan. Japan is considered a peaceful and clean country. There is a lot of this to include, but I prefer only this much. 

That's all. Thank You!
