Working from Home During COVID-19 Series to Be Translated into Japanese

Thanks to everyone who followed Working from Home During COVID-19, the series JapanCulture•NYC produced in collaboration with Yvonne Burton of Burton Consulting International. We hope that you found it informative and that you’re still applying Yvonne’s advice as you continue to work from home.

In one of our posts, a reader from Tokyo was having trouble making the adjustment from office to apartment and asked Yvonne how to draw the line between work life and private life. As it became clear that the series was reaching people in Japan, we thought that other Japanese readers would be more comfortable if our WFH articles were in their native language.

This recent tweet from Rochelle Kopp further puts into focus that Japanese companies are finally accepting the work-from home model as a viable reality. Make sure you read the comments for the interesting conversation.


Yvonne and I want to reach as many people in Japan as possible. We’re in the process of having each article in the Working from Home During COVID-19 series translated into Japanese. As the translations become available, we will attach them to each article.

In the meantime, if you have any questions for Yvonne about working from home, please send an email to
