Japan is a very modern, progressive country with new gadgets and inventions. For the most people Japan is a different planet, because technical progress is so strong.

Tokyo is the safest city in the world
Tokyo is the capital of Japan and the safest city in the world. Can you imagine that you do not need to worry about pickpockets and other criminals in the metro or other public places? Can you believe that you do not need to block the car or close the door of your house? Theft is contrary to Japanese culture, so the crime rate here is so low. For the same reason, they fall into unpleasant situations abroad.
Karoshi or white-collar problem
The Japanese are the most hard-working nation in the world. People work here for 13-16 hours a day! Moreover, each employee must come to work 30 minutes before the start, this is considered a sign of respect. When the working day is officially finished, no one is in a hurry to go home. This is considered disrespectful to your boss, colleagues and profession.
The biggest fear of every Japanese is to lose his job. This is considered a huge shame in Japan. It is assumed that a person begins work at a young age and leaves it as an old person. Many do not stand such a stress, crazy schedule and commit suicide. This problem is recognized at the national level. Every year about 15 thousand people die. In Japan, this is called karoshi. Despite this, the problem has not been solved yet.
