Day in the Life of a Japanese Waitress

A day in the life of a Japanese waitress in Tokyo working at a Japanese teppanyaki eating place. This is a normal work day for a waitress in the Japanese food industry and the normal working hours in Japan. This is a look inside of Japanese work culture in Japanese eating places. Working in Japan is quite distinct and depending on the industry could be a bit different from job to job, but many of the jobs in addition share comparable hallmarks. The video clip goes after Yuki in her typical japan work day from morning until the night and everything that happens in between at work. She arrives at the teppanyaki eating place when it opens and leaves when it closes, really typical for Japanese eating places. Yuki is a waitress at Pandora, a Teppanyaki eating place, Japanese style flat grill, which has been a local favorite since 1972 serving Kobe beef steaks and teppanyaki course meals. During her time working as a full-time waitress, she learned the significance of perusing and expecting the consumers needs and acting upfront. It is a powerful part of a Japanese omotenashi culture, a deep and truthful form of hospitality, treating consumers with respect without any requesting anything in return. So for her, even a grin from her consumers brings her true happiness. One of the main reasons why in Japan hints at the finish of the meal are really uncustomary.
