Pedestrians walk past a Premium Friday advertisement on display at Takadanobaba Station on February 22, 2017, Tokyo, Japan. Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has launched a policy called Premium Friday aimed at trying to change the working style in Japan and to help prevent deaths from overwork (karoshi). The campaign aims to encourage companies to let workers finish early every last Friday of each month to give them the opportunity to spend money after work or spend more time with their families. The first Premium Friday will be held on February 24. (Photo by Rodrigo Reyes Marin/AFLO)
