They say that The Japanese work too much.
However, so many Japanese companies are changing to western style about working. Employees of these companies are making holidays enough.

However, there are a lot of old-Japanese-style companies and there are a lot of old-type Japanese people even now.
They can't separate jobs and private life. their private life is including work. In other words, work for them is same as brushing one's teeth in their daily life.

My friend said proudly, "I've not had a holiday for three weeks."
Another friend said, "I didn't sleep for two days because my work is busy." or "I didn't take a bath for one week."
It seems that they are enjoying their busy jobs.
This is the rather extreme case. but there are Japanese people who like them, certainly.





日本人は働きすぎだといいます。
しかし、多くの日本企業が働き方について、西洋風に変わってきています。
これらの企業の社員は、充分な休みをとっています。

しかし、いまだに古い体質の日本企業や、古いタイプの日本人はたくさんいます。
彼らは、仕事と私生活を切り離すことが出来ません。彼らの仕事は私生活の一部でもあるのです。言い換えれば、働くことと、歯を磨くことは同じ日常生活なのです。

私の友人は、「三週間休みが無い」と誇らしげに言います。
別の友達は、「仕事が忙しくてまる二日間寝てない」と言い、「一週間風呂に入ってない」とか言います。
それはまるで仕事が忙しいことを楽しんでいるように見えます。
これは極端な例でしょう。ですが、このような日本人は確かにいます。
