The Ups and Downs of Office Life Avery Morrow / English Teacher / USA

H

ow often have you seen it happen? The boss blurts out something completely wrong, and the employees smile and offer no objection. Perhaps you yourself, as a foreign guest, have been “the boss” in this situation. I certainly have! What you’ve witnessed is Japan’s vertical social structure, where there is no point and indeed no acceptable means to object to your superior. In the West, we also have superiors and inferiors, but we don't really like to emphasize the point, because we have to be careful not to anger our co-workers. We mock the “yes men” around us and try to minimize our power structure. In Japan, though, a life without vertical relations would be one full of confusion and anxiety. What direction should we be taking? Whose chain of command are we under?

Thus, the problem at hand: there’s no way to appeal the decisions of your friendly local bureaucrat. Foreigners often feel powerless in this culture, even after many years in the country. You will often hear regrets that Japan’s overly structured society stifles innovation or prevents equal treatment. Japanese locals, who have probably seen countless examples of talent

suppressed by the system, will add to the criticism. Certainly nobody is perfect in any country, but it’s easy to forget in this flood of lamentation that you are living in the third largest economy in the world and one of the safest places on Earth. That didn’t happen through a government order; it required the cooperation of an entire people. Every aspect of Japanese life is marked by this shared belief in program, enlivening and giving meaning to the basic, everyday relationships in our lives. It’s woven neatly into the language, so that honorific or casual attitude is always specified. The regularity of aisatsu, greetings, in the office, and set phrases at the restaurant or convenience store, provides constant reassurance of the existence of program. In the 1960s, businessmen considered a clean suit more important than a full meal. And the same instinct that creates this vertical society also creates many of the special experiences sought after by foreigners who come here. Nothing demonstrates this better than the

nomikai, a ritual that continues to astound newcomers, and with good reason. Told he will be made to attend an office party after his arrival, a Westerner’s mind might naturally flicker to horrific memories of similar events in his home country: standing awkwardly around groups of unfamiliar coworkers, and being forced to pal around with your boss as if he were an average guy. Instead they give him an assigned seat and a set meal to attend to, and tell him not to fill his own beer glass. If he wants beer, he must fill the glasses of those around him. These simple rules, if followed by everyone, perform magic. Suddenly the simple act of filling up a glass becomes an exchange of thoughtfulness: you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. The new guy gets a chance to solidify his role at his business by demonstrating concern for, and interest in, his coworkers. He leaves the nomikai feeling fulfilled and better connected. Only the cleverest gaijin, though, will realize that life at the office is supposed to work the same way. So, given all these benefits to the Japanese

way, what’s a manager to do when his boss is wrong? This is an eternally hot topic in Japan, for which a certain answer might never be found, but a local small business owner offered me one answer last night. He told me that when the foreign trade ministry representative came to his office, he treated him like a king, respected his every order, smiled and nodded while he listened to a long stream of bad advice—and then proceeded to do just the opposite, making big profits for his company. Better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Andrij Sonoda

I

n his teens, Andrij Sonoda was into wadaiko (Japanese drums) for a few years, but never imagined he would become a pro! But, that is what happened earlier this year - and he hasn’t looked back! It has had him travel throughout Japan and in South America already, and he is looking forward to next year which could include South American and European tours. His troupe is called Japan Marvelous, and he spent a year with them as a trainee, before they took him on as one of their five regular members. He is one of only a few foreign professional wadaiko players in the country, and is happy to be promoting the art to the world. Now, besides practicing three hours a day, he is the quasi international relations go-to – translating information into English and Portuguese and arranging overseas tours. He also teaches others at the associated school ‘Wadaiko Studio Ikkokan’ where he has started an international class which offers English guidance. Andrij loves that once he mastered the official techniques of the wadaiko – how to hold the sticks, stand and strike the drum, he has been able to incorporate his own style -as a musically passionate Brazilian, he has lots of that! His advice to anyone who wants to try wadaiko or Japanese arts is, “Japan gives us opportunities that we might not have at home. Obey the rules they give you and you can do it.” For information about the Japan Marvelous troupe and/or wadaiko lessons with Wadaiko Studio Ikkokan, you can contact Andrij direct on: 080-3814-2414.

◊ Universal Design City – Fukuoka Festival

◊ Fukuoka Tourist City Pass Fukuoka City Transportation Bureau, The Nishi-Nippon Railway, The Kyushu Railway Company, and the Showa Bus Company have teamed up to offer the Fukuoka Tourist City Pass, a one-day pass for overseas tourists to use on public transportation in Fukuoka City. • There are two types: (1) ¥800 (Inside the city, except for Nishitetsu trains), and (2) ¥1,300 (Inside the city and Dazaifu) • Transportation facilities available: Nishitetsu buses (Central Fukuoka, free area), Fukuoka City Loop Bus (Guriin),

Fukuoka City’s objective is to become a community open to all and where everyone is considerate of others. Several events based on this theme will be held from Sep. 29~Oct.14. On Sunday, Oct. 14, from 11:00~16:30, an event will be held to raise awareness about the disabled. It will include a walk wearing eye masks, the chance to experience mobility in a wheelchair, different booths, and the sale of items produced by a workshop for the disabled. Also, the 4th International Conference for Universal Design in Fukuoka 2012 will be held from Oct. 12~14 at the Fukuoka Convention Center, the Fukuoka Kokusai Center, and universities in the city. An estimated 12,000 people from 30 countries and territories will attend. The conference will feature

the exchange of opinions and the interaction of the participants, and discussions on achieving a society with a high level of universal design. • A symposium open to the public will be held on Friday, Oct. 12, from 12:10. It will be open to 1,000 people, and admission is free. Applications are being accepted on the Web at (www.ud2012.net). Site: Fukuoka Convention Center, Hakata Ward. Keynote addresses will be given by author Ayako Sono and architect Toyo Ito, with simultaneous interpretation, subtitles, and Japanese sign language.

◊ Let’s mind our manners Fukuoka City passed an ordinance calling for the creation of a safe, pleasant, and livable Fukuoka. It is part of the city’s efforts to improve the public behavior of its citizens. Measures include prohibiting the abandonment of bicycles, preventing automobile parking that causes inconvenience, preventing the littering of cans and other refuse, prohibiting graffiti, enforcing the responsibilities of smokers, and prohibiting illegal advertising. There are also plans to pass an ordinance this year for the safe use of bicycles. At present, smoking is prohibited on the street in the Tenjin, Daimyo, and Hakata Station districts. Officials are circulating to provide guidance for obstructive parking, smoking in prohibited areas, and safe driving.

YIPEE! FOR FREE! Fukuoka’s many autumn events Beginning with the Hakata Akihaku 2012, there will be many events between Oct.1 and Nov. 30. These include Hakata Tomyo Watching, “Hakata Kenjo Dochu” (a parade of women wearing Hakata kenjo obi), the Wadaiko Festival at Tocho-ji temple, and Kushida Shrine’s Hakata Kunchi. • Details: http://hakata-meguri.city.fukuoka.lg.jp/column
