The city of Tomakomai in Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost main island, plans to promote a local camping resort for teleworkers interested in "workations" that combine work and vacations.

日本最北邊的主要島嶼北海道的苫小牧市,打算向有意「工作度假」結合工作與度假的遠距工作者,推銷當地的露營休閒場。

The municipal office is eyeing a budget of 40 million yen to provide high-speed internet access in the cottages and meeting rooms at Auto Resort Tomakomai Arten, a popular resort owned by the city close to New Chitose airport.

市府正打算用4000萬日圓預算,在當地熱門的公營Arten汽車渡假區的小木屋、會議室提供高速網路。

Workations are drawing attention with the growth of remote working amid the coronavirus pandemic.
