These incredible photos of people sleeping in public spaces show how hard life in Tokyo really is and this is a very exact explanation for Japan’s several deaths from exhaustion at the workplace.
Japanese people take honor and pride to the next level and because these values are considered the most important things in Japan’s day to day life, some people struggle so much at work to impress their superiors and to show how hardworking and neglect their personal life completely.
These incredible photos of Tokyo show us exactly what it means to be a workaholic and we can honestly say that this is very frightening. People falling asleep in public spaces like bus stops, subway stations, stairs or even on the sidewalk is just one more thing pointing out the over-exhaustion of the regular Japanese worker.
Photographer Adrian Storey brilliantly captured this very serious problem in Japan’s capital and in the country’s other big cities and if you want to check out more of his work, you can do it right here.
