What was the brief?

A Japanese communications agency who regularly publishes thought leadership on the future of Japanese society approached us for our expertise in ‘outside-in’ view of Japan. The topic for their thought leadership piece was on the ‘future of work’.

How we approached things

Tokyoesque recommended two unique apprenticeship schemes, one from the UK and the other from Singapore. Our deep dive landed in a trend report that became a part of their research report.


We used a combination of desk research and depth interviews to gather information, compiling it into a detailed report in Japanese.


  • Produced a 22-page deep-dive report
  • Interviewed 4 apprenticeship participants
  • Resulted in 2 articles published by the client
