Using space as efficiently as possible is very important. That’s why Japan isn’t letting any spaces go to waste, and that includes Ferris wheel gondolas. Last month, Japan opened its national parks to office workers to encourage remote working in safe, outdoor spaces. Now a theme park is allowing remote workers to rent out a gondola for some unparalleled privacy with great views. On a clear day, you can even see Mount Fuji from the top.
The Yomiuriland amusement park, just 30 minutes out of Tokyo, recently announced the “Amusement Workstation” package, designed to attract remote workers. For just $18 per person (or $34 per pair), you can spend the entire workday at a “work booth” near the park’s pool, but the most enticing part of the package is the hour-long reservation (four laps) on the Ferris wheel, which is equipped with Wi-Fi. And once your workday is over, you can enjoy the theme park’s rides and the hot bath facility.
You can reserve the packages starting October 15, with poolside work stations available from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Masks will be required when social distancing isn’t possible, and some attractions or shops may be closed due to the pandemic.
