A Man’s Job?

Meet Rino Sasaki, Japan’s Most Beautiful Truck Driver

ong haul truck driving is generally seen as a man’s job, but Rino Sasaki, a young female truck driver from Japan, is challenging this stereotype and conquering social media in the process.

Rino Sasaki grew up in Kochi Prefecture as the daughter of a long haul truck driver, but never really considered the idea of becoming one herself until seven years ago, when her father became sick. He continued working, but she couldn’t stand the thought of her father all alone on the road, thousands of miles away from home, with no one to care for him.

Followers wish Rino safe journey

So 21-year-old Rino, who worked as a traditional dance teacher at the time, got a truck driving license and decided to join her father on his long haul trips. She tried teaching her dance classes as well, but soon learned that driving thousands of miles around the country meant that she might not always be back home on schedule, so she eventually abandoned her old career and became a full-time truck driver.

While the drastic career change meant giving up something she loved to do, Rino Sasaki claims she has no regrets. She gets to spend time with her father and make sure his is ok, and he teaches her new things about truck driving every day. Becoming one of the few “tragirls” (female truck drivers) in Japan also got the young woman a lot of attention online. With thousands of followers on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, Rino Sasaki is the most famous woman truck driver in the Asian country and is often referred to as “Japan’s most beautiful truck driver”.

Sasaki hopes that her popularity will inspire other Japanese women to enter the transportation industry. This is one of the main reasons why she documents her life on various social networks, posting photos and stories of her life on the road.
