Short Film Considers Six Perspectives on Taking Vacations in Japan

Movies & TV Trends & Culture - June 29th, 2016

This thought-provoking short film asks six Japanese interviewees about their favorite vacations, and what it means to get away from work in a society that is known for working very hard.

“Tokyo Vacations,” a 10-minute film made by the Swedish creative agency House of Radon, is a sobering look at the work-life balance that many salaried workers face in Tokyo. For those of you who live in Japan and are working at a Japanese company, do you feel that your situation is the same, or do you feel like you have a bit more freedom than your Japanese counterparts do?
