About the "Salaryman" in Tokyo:

In Japan, the term "salaryman" refers to a white-collar office worker who is typically employed by a corporation. Salarymen are known for their dedication and long working hours, often symbolizing the post-war economic boom that transformed Japan into a global economic powerhouse. These employees usually wear dark suits and ties, and their daily routine includes commuting via crowded public transport and spending extended hours at the office.

Salarymen are a significant part of Japan's workforce culture, often embodying values such as loyalty, perseverance, and conformity. Despite their crucial role in the economy, the lifestyle of a salaryman can be demanding and stressful, leading to a work-life imbalance. Socializing after work, usually in izakayas (Japanese pubs), is a common practice, where colleagues bond over drinks and food.

In recent years, the salaryman culture has faced scrutiny and calls for reform, aiming to improve work-life balance and address issues such as overwork and mental health.
