From the looks of this, quite a lot. Even though the day seems far more relaxed and social than I had initially expected, it feels like Miyama has very little time for his family and personal life, which is a shame. I imagine that's part of what's steering more mangaka to take break weeks, along with taking care of their physical health.
I think they purposefully allowed the film crew/guy when they were ahead of schedule...
The first thing that jumped out...this guy must be doing GREAT! To be able to afford THAT much space in Tokyo (unless the guy creating the video is calling a suburb of Tokyo to still be "Tokyo"). The size of the park and the price of the price of the food doesn't seem like Tokyo at all. But minor point.
The social side is only because they completed the chapter. Japan definitely promotes alcoholism with normalizing getting drunk as hell for "work" related events quite a bit. So that second work meeting is definitely a norm and they tone it down for the camera.
It is nice to see him take the effort to exercise at least a little bit. And I gotta agree on the importance of balancing work with physical and mental health.
I found his chosen path the most surprising. I wonder if more people follow his mercenary-mindset and purposefully jump from job to job to maximize learning. It is a major internship, and especially if he worked on major serializations. I hope he didn't burn bridges in the industry to get to where he is now.
Back to the blind Oda faith (until the next B.S. of course).
