The last 12 months have seen many people re-examining their ability to work from anywhere, and the workation concept has significantly grown in popularity. Literally combining the words work and vacation, the idea is that you work remotely from a destination that may help you relax, increase your creativity and productivity, and inspire you in a way that drab office walls can't.
Another concept that has seen a surge in popularity is glamping - a portmanteau of the words glamorous and camping. Glamping destinations typically offer the fun of a camping experience with amenities for added comfort.
Hakuba's Mominoki Hotel has managed to combine the workation concept with glamping, and their accommodation, treehouse, and footbath are all equipped with high speed Wi-Fi so you can work from a laptop with ease. There are a wide range of other additions that make getting things done ultra-easy, including a printer, scanner, projector, and audio equipment. Need a way to get around and explore after the work day is done? The hotel rents out electric bicycles, allowing you to enjoy the best of Hakuba's beautiful scenery during your stay.
The price for a two night workation stay (with four meals included) is 18,000 yen, and reservations can be made via the official hotel website here. If you have the ability to work remotely but feel like a change of scenery would help re-energize you, this might be the perfect solution.
