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.

Pachinko is a type of mechanical ball game resembling pinball, but instead with many tiny balls and with the aim to drop the balls into specific pockets in the machine.  If one of the balls, goes into the designated pocket, called STATO CHAKKA, it will initiate a slot machine like roll on the LCD screen.  If the numbers or patterns line up, then it’s a jackpot.  The winnings can be used to claim various prizes at the front desk, but cannot be claimed for cash directly since gambling is prohibited by Japanese law.  Instead, the winnings can be exchanged into gold chips.  Then outside at a neighboring TUC shop, the gold chips can be exchanged for cash.
