Too Drunk To Move! Japanese Salarymen

Salarymen are what white-collar businessmen are known as in Japan, and they work hard and party harder. That’s not just a figure of speech – check out this massive gallery of salarymen passed the fuck out drunk on the subway, street, in a bush, in their food, and basically wherever the fuck they ended up after one too many (or many too many). I have never been to Japan, but Sean has told me many times about how much people drink, and here’s some evidence of dudes who clearly needed to let loose. The funniest part about this is that these guys are left alone by everyone else around them. Their briefcase could be a few feet away, strewn on the floor, and no one will take it or rifle through it. They aren’t fucked with, beat up, spit on, kicked, robbed or basically any other thing you’d imagine would happen to them in pretty much any North American city. They also aren’t helped up or put somewhere safe; they are pretty much left to rot where they dropped. There’s something hilarious about seeing men in the uniform of civility sprawled out like an alcoholic teenager – does this hurt their respectability or careers in the same way it would here? I assume it doesn’t, or you wouldn’t see so many of them. Check out the phenomenon of drunk salarymen below!

    They also work many hours and sleep (when not passed out) little, don’t they?

    • May 10, 2016 at 2:53 am — Reply

      They do work many hours, but a lot of this is because of Japanese work culture. You are expected to participate in nomikai’s (drinking parties) as a way to bond with your coworkers. After the official party, there is the afterparty or nijikai, where groups split off and go to bars, karaoke, etc. And then, maybe another after party with one or two friends, and that’s how you end up passed out on the sidewalk.

      Man, I don’t even like going out to lunch with coworkers. So would it be shameful in Japan if you skipped it and went home to your family?
