This is typical of the Japanese "seen to be doing the right thing" mentality. I am not interested in facilitating this type of ridiculous, time-wasting activity.
A company is in business to make a profit and people work for the company so they can further their careers, dreams, experience - oh and they get to pay their bills, put food on the table and afford holidays etc. It is NOT the company's responsibility to provide relaxation/stress relief opportunities. Workers need to do that on their own time!
In Australia we do encourage "work-life" balance and that means we provide an opportunity for workers to balance their personal responsibilities and interests against what the company needs. As long as we get the job done - we're always happy to accommodate working models that suit employee needs. But this? No. Anything beyond the occasional team-building exercise is not on the table.
Grow up and take responsibility for your own life!
