Coffee shops in Tokyo are often full of workers toiling away on laptops. WeWork, which opened its first locations in Japan last year, also sees businesses and employees embracing more flexible working spaces in different locations that can be used only when needed. The Japanese government is also encouraging workers to telecommute , in anticipation of congested transportation networks during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, when 7.8 million spectators are forecast to visit, according to the organizing committee. Companies are also increasingly embracing telework, with 19% of businesses with more

The TTC is continuing to phase out its collector booths in line with a new transit model that it's rolling out fully next year. Starting January 5, the booths at 20 stations will be shuttered — adding to a growing list of stations that already sit unmanned. The stations include major stops on all four lines, such as Bloor-Yonge, St. George In the early stages of the transition, TTC personnel will still be available to verify payment types, accept cash and answer questions (they just won't be standing in a booth ). The collector booths at 20 subway stations will close at the end of service on Jan 4, 2020.

Imagine, instead of the metro photo booth, booths specially designed to isolate you and attend your professional meeting by videoconference. This is precisely the idea of ​​"CocoDesk", developed by the multinational Fuji Xerox, which installed these funny cabins in the corridors of the Tokyo metro.

Inaugurated in August 2020 in the capital of Naples, the "CocoDesk" are equipped to feel "at the office": a work table, an office chair, an LCD screen, sockets for connecting electronic devices, a Wifi connection and an air conditioning system ... and even carpeted floors.

 Olympia in Tokyo will be almost two billion euros more expensive The postponement of the summer games by one year will cost 1.24 billion euros, the additional costs for the planned measures in the fight against the corona pandemic for the games are 741,800 euros.

Seriously, I was in Tokyo last spring and Maps got me everywhere, it has the correct train names, color codes, whatever you need. Also, if you're a visitor and have the Japan Rail Pass (which is pretty good thing to have), only the white-and-colored dotted JR lines are actually relevant, which makes the entire thing much more manageable. This map is slightly misleading as it includes the lines to the outer far flung suburbs where the avg tourist won’t go. It’s a lot more compact and simpler in the center of Tokyo .

According to Fuji Xerox, there are currently 63 such installations in Tokyo metro stations. If you quickly imagine yourself suffocating at the idea of ​​spending several hours in a row in these individual cabins (claustrophobic, abstain), the CocoDesk are more aimed at people who wish to isolate themselves for a professional meeting between two metro trips. They are in fact available for hire in 15-minute increments at a price of 250 yen (approximately 2 euros).

Another Japanese initiative, that of an amusement park, Yomiuri Land, has for example launched an offer for its visitors offering them to work ... at the top of the Tokyo Ferris wheel. Finally, some capsule hotels and karaoke bars, real institutions in the Land of the Rising Sun, have temporarily turned into workspaces.

Some of these innovations, however, date from before the pandemic. In the financial district of Marunouch in Tokyo, it is not uncommon to see camping tents pitched at the top of buildings. One way to offer a moment of escape to employees in suits and ties who spend long hours in the office.
