    Saku City is about 70 minutes from Tokyo Station. At Work Terrace Saku, we welcome everyone who visits the area for their own reasons. With a comfortable open lounge, a coworking area where small talk gets rolling, spaces for concentration, and so on, the spacious interior is divided to respond to your needs. What we’re aiming for is a “coworkation.” Here is a place where many people can share a work area, make discoveries through their small talk, and occasionally serve as partners.

  • Matsumoto City

    Norikura Tourist Association

    Part of the background of Norikura Highland in Nagano Prefecture is that it was originally developed as a “student village,” and since it’s also in Chubusangaku National Park, only what’s absolutely necessary is built there to preserve the natural scenery.
    There are no convenience stores or other useful trappings, but in exchange, the expansive untamed nature before you will soothe you, and it’s such a noiseless place you can converse with yourself, purifying both mind and body.
    In this age where it’s so easy to lose yourself, why not pay us a visit and make time to “rediscover yourself”?
