    Hey! Just discovered your channel. Yes I am very late..haha..but I love it. The day in the life of series so far is awesome! Please do more. Love from South Korea^^

    Oh wow!

  4. GD FrostByte October 8, 2019 at 8:57 pm

    1:43 is that a S13?

  5. Baleur October 8, 2019 at 10:53 pm

    The company doesnt pay for cleaning, lets their staff do it in the morning.
    The company doesnt pay for lunch, lets their staff pay for it themselves.
    The company requires them to show up at like 7am, but wont officially start their wage day until 9am.
    What a stingy boss. Unbelievable.

  6. Baleur October 8, 2019 at 11:00 pm

    12:25 hahaha omg my dad also used to lay on the floor watching tv i always thought it was so weird xD

  7. jinxtacy October 9, 2019 at 2:04 am

  12. oddeda October 11, 2019 at 10:54 am

    umn, nice video, but this is not a day in the life of a Car Repair Worker.
    She's basically a secretary or errand girl.

  13. manj46 October 11, 2019 at 10:54 pm

    We need to bomb them. Usa. Usa

  14. American Strong October 12, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    As in Denki Kaminari from Bnha?

  17. strawberry_shortcake4life October 12, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    I remembered our poor protagonist, Makoto. 😢 This woman is more valued by her coworkers. Very lucky! Unlike Makoto who run errands from end to end of his town. His boss doesnt even want him to take a cab during those errands. Makoto deserves justice! Lets help please!

  18. strawberry_shortcake4life October 12, 2019 at 5:04 pm

    Irina looks single. She should hook up with that guy @ 7:41. He looks cute or Makoto will also be good as well 😁😁😁 10:09 looks good! Looks like our Irina girl is getting our plans 😏😏😏

  19. Hanz Batosai October 13, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Paolo, would love to see a day in the life of a Robot cafe performer, thoughts?

  23. the gremlin October 16, 2019 at 9:38 am

    ngl this is super interesting

  24. KVJW L October 17, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    Can we get to know the salary she earns?

  25. Steven B October 18, 2019 at 4:24 am

    Great company culture

  26. さもはん October 18, 2019 at 3:54 pm


  27. Freddy Lee October 18, 2019 at 5:37 pm

    At last, a job in japan that allows you to leave at 6 pm.

  28. Steve Davenport October 19, 2019 at 5:01 am

    Well, on its face, seems like using your employees to clean is cost effective, but is it really; especially when you consider the opportunity costs of core tasks that are not getting done.

  29. Tranman69 October 19, 2019 at 12:45 pm

    Finally.. a person with a different alarm clock..

  30. nusa nus October 19, 2019 at 7:33 pm

    I love your videos

  31. Biker Boy October 19, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Im sorry what???? She is watching the news WHILE she is driving???? And yes, when I worked in Saudi Arabia we counted the money the same way also. A lot easier to do.

  32. shilloshillos October 20, 2019 at 2:54 pm

    I am always fascinated by work ethic in Japan. We have a lot to learn folks!

  33. dji zzah October 20, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    office lackey, not repairer

  34. Riian Kt October 21, 2019 at 4:19 am

  36. 1p4142136 October 21, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    @12:07 there, the most valuable time of the day, it all came down to this point. It’s what’s all about. Home sweet home with all family gathered around the tablet for dinner. How many of us do this now?

  37. Nata October 21, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    8:44 so why you work in toyota while you like nissan ? XD

  38. zebulator1992 October 21, 2019 at 7:42 pm

    My head just blowed up when I saw that they were repairing an Alpine (french sport car). We dont even see those cars in france XD

  43. mBabe October 23, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    Hello, can you help me check what the user manual of Toyota Vitz KSP-90 chassis and 1 KR engine (of 997 cc or about 1.0 L) says about fuel efficiency of the car when driven in the city?

    I have the manual but it's in Japanese. If you know Japanese, or can connect me to Erina I see she is driving the same car, and is in a mechanic shop.

  48. Keaton Castillo October 25, 2019 at 1:32 am

    I kinda like how they clean their own place.
    Alot of places in the states usually have a specific group who cleans every day (obviously excluding smaller businesses)

  49. Tagailog May Pagasa October 26, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    yow, dude, we need more of this vid. good job keep it up

  50. Max eronT October 27, 2019 at 5:38 am

    That voice sounds like he is the yakuza boss.

  51. Basit Abdul October 27, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    Hi I'm basit car mechanic best experience

  52. Wolfs Rain October 28, 2019 at 9:05 am

    She's NOT an auto repair worker. She IS a glorified secretary.

  53. M-T October 28, 2019 at 11:38 am

    That driver dude after the posting of this video, has been fired. Reason being is, he works at Toyota, yet his favorite car is Nissan. R.I.P.

    Japanese culture and people are really interesting. It seems to me that they have really embodied the word "simple". You can actually interpret it both in a positive and negative way.
    Positively – they have a straightforward life. You do your work, you do it like your forefathers have done it, you do it the same way your people do it.
    Negatively – Same things almost daily. Kind of like the salaryman, a lot of Japanese people expect to work in one company until they die… worded differently, they work until they die.

    If you think about her life, the work she does is kind of mundane, and is probably going to be a lot faster / easier if they adapted modern technology. However, I do believe that they don't adapt to modern technology because of the job.
    I think unlike most other workplaces wherein efficiency / overworking an employee is their goal, there they value the work itself.
    Japanese people were made to work… and somehow they don't find that appalling at all.

  54. bot October 28, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    11:17 uh oh stinky in Japanese lmao XD

    This girl looks so sad entire video

  59. The shah of Iran October 31, 2019 at 5:46 am

    I think they let her go home early for this video 😂

  60. Al Symphony October 31, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    Bro she does more cleaning than actual work

  62. Jonathan Lin November 1, 2019 at 2:27 am

    sick vids bro.

  63. Mirza Ahmed November 1, 2019 at 8:23 am

    Do any of the people in your videos ever go on dates, or live by themselves? No wonder the birth rate is so low.

  65. Ernesto HG November 2, 2019 at 6:07 am

    I LOVE these!, as much as I have a hard time talking to strangers, deep inside It's so interesting learning about other people's lifes

  66. yamahaJDM November 2, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Japan is awesome !

  67. Jesse Melanson November 3, 2019 at 12:37 am

    Wow what an awesome company to work for. I work in a small appliance business as a shop technician and we don't ever get that kind of treatment. It's just work, work, work, and the boss collects. You'd expect that kind of culture from a big company but small ones are super guilty of not caring, at least in the US.

  68. Ali Ay November 3, 2019 at 3:37 am

    Despite being of East Asian Mongoliod descent she has brownish hair

  69. S8nder November 3, 2019 at 10:21 am

    Reason why I enjoy these videos: To learn about all the unwritten little laws in Japan
    Reason why I wouldn't survive a day in Japan: the unwritten little laws in Japan

    Paolo, isnt this the same house as it was in the New Year family video? 😀

    I'm a mechanic that shop is so clean. What I wouldn't give to work there, eat bentos marry erina and drive an anime car 😅

    Is there anyone here who is (or was) a Toyota Mechanic ?

  77. Theo Suharto November 5, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    God this is so awesome !

  78. Theo Suharto November 5, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    That cracked floor in the building where she had the second break… That senior mechanic… Ohh this is so awesome

  79. Theo Suharto November 5, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    Why the hell do I love this video so much :p

  80. Paul Lombard November 5, 2019 at 6:35 pm


  81. Andres Vialpando November 5, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    Why the masks? Is it air pollution?

  83. BlkBohemian November 6, 2019 at 1:52 am

    Why did she take the old bento containers back to the shop?

  84. Moonlight Kidd November 6, 2019 at 5:58 am

    I know this is off topic, but she has a nice body

  85. Yimmi Maccc November 6, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    R u Japanese dude?

  86. Carpet Bombing November 6, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    4:03 EXACTLY !!! As a business owner myself, I do this all the time but looks like everyone else never did this kind of thing in my country

  87. Tupac Shakur November 7, 2019 at 1:34 am

    Good show.America has lots of angry people in a bad mood places are dirty ppl are lazy the american way.I live in Cincinnati,Ohio Usa.The woman in the video is very pretty I like Japanese women but I do not see many where I live.Maybe one time I visit Japan.If she watch this my facebook is contact me and maybe i visit or you visit usa after we have talked hey many people meet on internet here .

  88. SourStrawberrys November 7, 2019 at 4:01 am

    It makes sense to take a bad at night as oppose to morning. Why would you your smelly body in the bed? Plus you sleep better when you're clean.

  89. mykalimba November 7, 2019 at 5:24 am

    I just realized that Erina is Maiko's sister! They look so much like sisters, and they both look like mom!

  90. 52footballoak November 7, 2019 at 6:02 am

    She seem to be doing well for herself.

  91. Oosterhout’s Finest November 7, 2019 at 11:20 am

    Toyota's need fixing? That's a first for me

  92. Josef Venport November 7, 2019 at 2:24 pm

  94. The Seperator November 7, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    how is it allowed to watch videos while driving?

  95. White Diamond November 7, 2019 at 7:30 pm

    Nice! Thank you 4 your videos.😊

  96. Final Remains November 7, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    This is the first one I have watched of these and thought that they have it easy! She just cruises through her day 😀

  97. Mohamed Khaled November 7, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    11:00 that's an Ita car. I've seen these on the Detective Conan anime

  98. robert lemons jr November 7, 2019 at 11:05 pm

    Actually, hanging up on your customer is rude in America too. When I worked for Apple, you could get written up for that if not termination.

  99. Broccoli Fan November 8, 2019 at 3:02 am

    Even in modern days, many Japanese and companies won't let long kept good traditions and culture drift away.
    If you pay attention to every details of traditional routines and practice, they make the day efficient and meaningful. Japan success got solid reasons and foundation behind.

  100. Aman Walikar November 8, 2019 at 3:20 am

    Life – social life = japanese life
