      Often said - but not necessarily true :-)

      There's been a sustained government campaign to lower the average working hours in Japan, which seems to have been pretty effective. See some boring statistics [web-japan.org].

      Even if 50+ hour weeks were average in Japan it wouldn't make it any less dysfunctional.

  • I wouldn't even consider taking a job where 50 hours a week, or even anything > 40 hours, is considered normal.
