Will Miss #17 - paid transportation fees

When you work at a Japanese company, most of them will pay for your transportation fees. Usually, they will foot the bill for your train and subway pass. Sometimes, they will also pay for your bus fare (or, on rare occasions, taxis). The passes are supposed to only be used for going back and forth to work, but the truth is that there is no system to enforce this. You can use the pass to freely travel anywhere along the route from your home to your office.

I'm going to miss the company footing the bill for commuting expenses.
