What Makes Working for Japanese Companies Unique?
When asked what they find most appealing about Japanese culture, foreigners frequently mention the country’s renowned “politeness” and “omotenashi hospitality.” This spirit of thoughtful service permeates every corner of Japan, including restaurants, shops, and businesses.
Here in Los Angeles, the Japanese values of respect, kindness, and dedication to craft can be experienced at local Japanese companies and eateries. Working for a Japanese organization is a wonderful opportunity to learn about Japanese culture and offers exposure to a work culture that prioritizes consideration of others’ needs.
For instance, a friend employed at a Japanese restaurant shared how staff are trained to make diners feel valued – greeted warmly upon entering and bid gracious thanks upon leaving by hosts, servers, and chefs alike.
Another friend highlighted the familial atmosphere at her sushi restaurant, where cooks dishes on request to delight regular customers.
She also said that she was glad to have actually worked there and to have experienced the careful, delicate, and profound cooking process that is typical of Japanese culture in the process of preparing each dish of Japanese cuisine.
In this issue, JapanUp! spotlights career opportunities with Japanese companies and restaurants in LA.
Joining these teams allows immersion in a work ethic.
The chance to embrace Japanese business values – and see omotenashi service in action – awaits. We’d like to invite you to look over the job listings within and discover roles where you can engage while advancing your career.
