Trip in Chennai, India: Business feel


About a month ago, I was invited to visit India, and go on numerous client visits together with our colleagues in India. This would be an opportunity for me to see firsthand the Indian market culture and how it runs. I was quite excited but wasn’t exactly sure on what to expect.

April, a time for beginnings

Different cultures mark the beginning of the year in different ways. There is the calendar year, for example set by the Gregorian calendar or lunar calendar. There is the academic school year, the start date for which differs vastly by country and region. Japan uses the Gregorian calendar to mark the start of the year as 1 January, but it is one of the countries where the fiscal year starts in April. (Other countries that follow this schedule include Australia and New Zealand.) The academic school year also starts in April; this is thought to coincide with the fiscal year.

Accelerate Communications via A Study Session

We have an activity called study session which is created by me. It was made only around three months after I joined e-Jan. It was quite impressive because people were open to ideas even though it was from a new employee like me. I would like to explain more about the study session.


Before I explain what the study session is, I would like to write about its background. I got a motivation to create study session from my team leader. Once every two weeks, my team leader and I will have a “one on one” meeting for an hour. In the meeting, the leader couches me to become better professional. He asked me what my dreams are when we had our first meeting. One of my dreams was to become senior-level developer. Next, he asked me what to do to achieve my dream. I said I need to read books, write code frequently, and have many discussions as well as communications. Everything else is fine, but a lack of communications is the problem. My leader gave me a homework that I need to start discussions somehow. To fulfill this mission, I created the study session.

日本での育児と仕事の両立 (Balancing child rearing and work life in Japan)


日本では、育児をしながら働く女性が増えています。
家計に必要なお金を稼ぐことはもちろんのこと、好きな仕事を続けたい、キャリアを積みたい等、理由は様々です。
昔は妊娠後は退職し育児に専念する女性が多くいましたが、現在は夫婦で働き、育児や家事は分担する家庭が増えていると感じます。

政府も企業も、人口が減少する中、労働人口を確保する改革を進めており、出産後も働ける環境づくりや女性の就労支援が広がりつつあります。

春节在日本

又是一年旧岁辞,又是一年新年来。
在国内,当千家万户张灯结彩,合家欢庆农历新年;又或是近年来越发流行的举家同行,借着这难得的全民长假去外地旅行的时候。对于因为各种原因而无法回国回家的在日本的海外华人又是如何看待和度过这个节日的呢?


说农历新年(春节)是一个特殊的节日,是因为这或许是全世界仅有的几个,不基于西历日期,而是随着旧时的中国农历而每年变化的节日。时而在一月底时而在二月初。因为“闰月”的出现,2018年、农历戊戌年的新年更是比以往更加来得晚,2月16日才终于进入了狗年新春。
春节的另一个特殊性,在于它时至今日依然在很大程度上左右着华人对于“新年”的概念。似乎只有过了农历大年三十,才代表着一年收官。也只有到了正月初一,才终于意识着新的一年终于开始。
春节更为重要的另一层含义,是在于与家人的团聚。在这一天,无论是奔波在天涯海角的哪一方,我们都会回到自己家里,和父母亲人团聚、共叙家常。

Valentine’s Day memories


In Japan, there is an established tradition of women giving men chocolates on Valentine’s Day. There are two ways that chocolate is given: Honmei-choco is chocolate given to a romantic partner, while Giri-choco (‘obligation chocolate’) is given to friends and coworkers and has no romantic meaning.
On the flipside, unique to Japan is March 14, White Day, in which men who have received chocolates on Valentine’s Day give gifts in return.

This week’s guest post is written by ‘Y.I.’on her past experiences of Valentine’s Day while working at a different, more traditional Japanese company.

日本人駐在員が語る:日本とアジア圏の大きなビジネスカルチャーの違い

シンガポールなど、東南アジアの日系企業に赴任する日本人駐在員が第一に驚くのが「ローカルスタッフが定時で退社する」ことでしょう。

※ローカルスタッフ:本国から派遣された駐在員ではなくその国で現地採用されたスタッフ
文字通りLocally Hiredされているというだけで、差別的な意味はありません

午後5時30分が定時であれば、5時35分にはほぼ全員のローカルスタッフはオフィスからいなくなります。
日本人だけが遅くまで残っているというのはよくある話であり、日本人にとっては違和感がありますがそこには文化的背景があります。
いくつか理由を挙げてみましょう。

Are liberal arts useless in the IT industry?

I hope no one is offended by the click-baiting title, but isn’t it what people usually ask from the bottom of their heart? Many programmers are from Taiwan at e-Jan, and one of them told me that one must have a science degree in order to become a developer in Taiwan. During the job interview for a position of developer, the interviewer expressed concern because I studied economics (which is a liberal art) in university.

全力以赴

转眼之间到e-Jan快半年了。已经渐渐习惯了刚刚来到这里时的那些“惊喜”(有在上一篇讲到过哦)。“惊喜“过后随之而来的是不断的学习。对于一名,被分配到一群充满个性的清一色的男性”码农“中间当PM(项目经理)的MBA毕业生,这个工作真的是一次不小的挑战。你可以想象,当我们在外面聚餐,服务员弄错了我们预定的菜单时,大家脱口而出的是”啊,404了。“”不对,这应该是403。“……

Summer holidays at e-Jan Networks

September usually marks the beginning of fall, but here in Tokyo warm, summery days linger into the latter half of the month. This year’s summer seems particularly long, not only reflective in the temperature but also in e-Jan’s summer holiday system.
