1.Commute time (one way) is about a half of that in the metropolitan area!
According to the average commute time (one way) of each prefecture, everyday commute times in the metropolitan area are as shown below.( Kanagawa: 53 minutes Chiba: 52 minutes Saitama: 51 minutes Tokyo: 45 minutes Shizuoka: 27 minutes)
Compared to those, the average commute time (one way) in Shizuoka is 27 minutes.
Because we need to commute every day, how big is the difference in a year? Let’s calculate.
The difference of average one-way commute time between Kanagawa (53 minutes) and Shizuoka (27 minutes) is 26 minutes. For one day, it should be doubled for a round trip, and the difference becomes 52 minutes. Assuming the number of annual holidays is 125 days, the number of working days is 240 days. It makes 12,480 minutes in one year. Indeed, the difference is 208 hours!
Some people may study to acquire a qualification or read a book during commutation to spend the time meaningfully. However, 208 hours a year can be used more meaningfully for hobbies and concentrated study for a qualification test, and for the time spent with your family, lover and friends above all. That will make your life richer.
