Best Japanese TV Shows to Watch: Teiji De Kaerimasu

Photo Credit: (

Teiji De Kaerimasu is an easygoing, fun drama that gives an insight into the work culture of Japan, as well as how it has been changing recently.

Japan and most Asian countries aren’t known for their fantastic work cultures; Japan is known for making its workers do overtime, not take too much vacation time, and be active in after-work social events. Teiji De Kaerimasu reflects this, as the main character (Yui) works at a company where all of these are prioritized. Rather than conform to these standards though, Yui always leaves work on time, takes ample vacation time, and doesn’t really participate in going to bars and other after work activities. Yui learned from her last job that this overwork can be harmful to her health, and prioritizes her own well-being over her image at the company.

Teiji De Kaerimasu presents Yui as a non conformist who eventually helps to change the way her company operates. While it is not all smooth sailing (hence the drama designation), Yui’s habits rub off on her coworkers and helps them to promote a better work-life balance.

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
