"Tokyo is a very busy town. It..." People Tip by Pavlik_NL

People, Tokyo: 29 reviews and 26 photos


Tokyo is a very busy town. It can once and a while be too much, but it also might enchant you how one tries to do everything as efficient as possible. Buildings are erected in no-time and cityscape is changing almost from day to day. Japanese culture is (more and more 'was') one of 'serving society' and 'together we're strong'. Work was important and unemployment is/was low. The level of industrial belongs to the highest in the world and there is an amazing process of descision in which all employees wishes and statements are considered. The time before a discision can take very long, but if it is made ... seldomly changes need to be done along the way in realising things. This and many other things might be strange for the average foreigner, but look closer ... at least you will see the benefits of being a little less selfish or privatised. we can learn a lot from eachother, that's for sure and I enjoyed my Japanese lifelessons to the fullest.
