Some cafes in Japan are offering college students simulated experiences, using virtual reality technology, of everyday life at work in a company.

The simulation takes the user through a day in the life of a company employee, moving beyond the explanations given at company information sessions. The content ranges from workplace atmosphere to the room layout of company dormitories and what the cafeteria is like.

The experience is expected to help students understand the gap between the ideal and the reality, as well as becoming a place for local firms to sell themselves to students in metropolitan areas.
