Japanese customers "too busy" to take entitled holidays according to survey

“In a ..... survey released last year (2009) by online travel site Expedia Japan, 39.5 percent of the 516 survey respondents cited "I'm too busy at work" as a reason for not using up their paid holidays. Perhaps more troubling is the fact that 23 percent cited the "atmosphere in the workplace" that kept them from taking holidays, while another 14.8 percent even said they did not want to take holidays because they were "worried their bosses and co-workers might not like it."”
