Yomiuriland, an amusement park in Tokyo, launched an “amusement workation” package to include a working booth next to its pool and a ride on its observation Ferris wheel with a portable WiFi router.

“I love working outside. This is a good plan and it feels great,” said Tatsuki Yamamoto, 47, president of IT solutions firm FLEQ, sitting on a white pool chair with his laptop. Employees at his company are also working remotely, Yamamoto said.

Many workers in Japan and globally, began telecommuting as the coronavirus spread and governments imposed strict restrictions to contain it.

Several tourist attractions in Japan have been hit by the pandemic and some amusement parks have explored other ways to lure visitors.

The Yomiuriland theme park sells day passes for 1,900 yen ($18.05) per person on weekdays and 2,000 yen for weekends and holidays, including a workspace rental on the poolside and a ride on the giant Ferris wheel, as well as after-work free golf balls at a driving range inside the park.

About ten customers including Yamamoto used the park with roller coasters and a haunted house as their alternative office.

On the slowly moving Ferris wheel, Yamamoto dialed into an online conference call and showed off the height to his co-workers through a camera on his laptop. However, it was hard to focus in the air, he said. “I don’t know whether to enjoy the view or do the work.”
