Day in the Life of a Japanese Space Engineer


From Paolo from Tokyo.

A day in the life of Space Engineer in Tokyo Japan. A full day following a Japanese Aerospace Engineer starting with him waking up in his Tokyo home with his Japanese family. Takashi is a Japanese husband and Japanese father taking care of his family in Japan. He lives in an average Japanese apartment in Tokyo and we get a peek into a day in his life in Japan. As a Japanese dad, he has a 4 year old Japanese kid and he balances his Japan worklife with Japan homelife. Takashi would be considered a Japanese salaryman as he has fairly standard working hours at Astroscale as a Space Engineer in Tokyo Japan. on this day, we get to see his working hours in Japan. In addition to working on the ELSA-d project, he also has worked with JAXA on other missions. JAXA stands for Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and is the Japanese national aerospace and space agency. During the day, Takashi also visits Gitai, a space robotics company and meets with several Japanese robotics engineers. We even get a chance to explore the office and see Japanese built robots being designed for space.
