Day in the Life of a Japanese Game Programmer


A Japanese Game Developer working in Tokyo Japan. This is the programmer life in Japan. As a Japanese game programmer you’ll see what it is like commuting to work in Tokyo and going to work at one of the largest Video Game Studios in Japan as well as working with other Japanese video game developers, software engineers, video game devs, game designers and even Japanese game directors for a major Japanese Video Game studio. We follow Masa, a 23 year old, Japanese programmer, throughout his workday and witness what he does during his Japanese working hours as a Japanese game programmer at the Bandai Namco Studios office in Tokyo. We’ll even interact with directors from popular Japanese video game titles such as Tekken and CodeVein. Plus we’ll get to see what a Japanese programmer from one of the large Video Game companies in Japan does after work with friends. This look inside a Japanese game dev’s life is pretty unique and should provide some insight for those people who want to work in Japan as a game developer or game programmer. Also, this day in the life of a Japanese programmer will show you what it takes to be a Japanese programmer. As you would expect, most of the work day is spent programming and coding, but there are other unique aspects of the Japanese programmers life we are able to see in this video.

  3. average japanese lifestyle looks ok, reasonable wake up hour, not a fan of the "russian bath" , walks a few blocks to the train station which certainly gets a little cardio in to completely wake up given that he only washed his face lol, 8 hours of work on a small desk with separations few codes gets to chill have a snack, get a free drink of his choice, lunch time is ok (an hour), hangs out a little bit with friends and goes home to vibe to whatever he likes in this case anime. im more of a music geek (techno) but esentially im living this guys life with a diferent core purpose but same routine. (except the russian bath) xd

  4. Hey Paolo can you try visiting Hololive as well? Its a new company that focuses on a group of female idols that are VTubers. So they are a new type of company, and it won’t be long until it becomes quite famous in overseas.

  5. Paolo ur videos r always fun and interesting to watch plus xan u plss plss visit puerrot studio & meet masashi kisimoto and boruto creators like this and ask them the how they crate those animes & everything plus it would be incredible if u net tge voice sctors as well lol idk if ull do it? Bt i really hope you upload the visiting pierrot studio!!! ❤

  6. People think he's a nerd/geek/weaboo/otaku kinda guy but to me, he is living the dream. Living in Japan, building Gundams as a hobby, and working in a gaming company where he can take naps with free drinks, surrounded by Video games etc. Though behind the scenes there are probably mundane and repetitive stuff like writing lines of codes for hours per day, its admirable that he is doing something he enjoys.

  7. Expat Software Engineer's in International Companies and Startups in Japan have a pretty good time here. Avoid old japanese companies and you will have a great time here.
