Except that if employees were pleased to escape to the trains and subways crowded in the morning, they saw two major drawbacks. First : actually work effectively when the children turn around without stopping, it is exhausting and not really effective. Segundo : go to the train station, pacing the corridors of the metro stations, or those of the company, mine of nothing, it is to exercise, which in turn lack when one telecommutes.Not to mention that, according to a survey by the Institute Meiji Yasuda survey of 1,000 households with young children, " a quarter of women in the home do not want their husband works at home, because it disrupts family harmony and he does not know well manage the work/life balance ". also Read the Face of the Covid-19, Japan closes itself to foreigners

in the Face of this emerging teleworking offers to the outside, in satellite offices. The first, called "Telecube" favors efficiency at the expense of well-being ; the second, " workation ", it is the opposite. "Telecube ", it is of small cabins hardly larger than those that were used in the past to call from the outside. The Telecube can be found especially in the towers of business districts in central Tokyo, for example at Marunouchi. There are arranged a seat, a table, a power outlet and USB charging.

Workation (fusion of the terms "work" and " vacation "), it is a neologism created in the sector in Japan several years ago, but that was never really made. In the midst of a crisis of Covid-19, "workation" this is not just two words in one, but also two birds with one stone, as explained in Suga : "It is the fight against the virus and help the hotels through the promotion of teleworking on a place usually reserved for holidays.

"We offer special packages for customers who find it inconvenient to telecommuting at home," says one employee. The need for work (network, small meeting rooms, projectors, fax machine, library, press, etc) is added to the surplus for the relaxation (onsen-spa, swimming pool, restaurant, massage service).
