  • Take a trip while continuing to work! A workation on one of the Kagawa islands in Seto Inland Sea Megijima edition

Takamatsu, Kagawa boasts a large number of workation sites.
"Workation" is a portmanteau of "working"  and "vacation." A workation is a vacation that allows you to work remotely from a holiday destination or tourist resort.
The chance to interact with local people and the unique experiences that ensue make workations so appealing. You may be able to come up with new ideas or improve your productivity simply by being in a different environment.

Excellent location! Workation on Megijima in the Seto Inland Sea

It takes 20 minutes to reach Megijima by ferry from the Takamatsu Port. The short travel time means it is even possible to enjoy a one-day workation.
You can admire cherry blossoms in spring, enjoy a dip in the sea in summer, and explore Onigashima Cave, where the demons appeared in Momotaro, part of Japanese folklore, are said to have lived.

Megijima

Beach Office Megijima 


Beach Office Megijima consists of several workation spots scattered along the 300-meter long public beach.
Several business owners such as those operating beachfront guesthouses and others who manage cafés came together to launch a Beach Office Megijima project.


Seeing a regular customer, who always stayed in the area for extended visits, working while sitting on the steps on the beach gave them the idea to set up office space on the beach.


You can connect to a Wi-Fi network on the beach. It is free for up to two hours.
You can borrow chairs and portable power supply devices from any of the Beach Office Megijima project partners.
We recommend that you make a reservation in advance by telephone, although you can borrow equipment from a partner on the spot if it's not too crowded.


Simply place a chair on your favorite spot and admire the majestic view across white sandy beach and blue sea. The sound of waves is sure to inspire you and help improve your productivity.
Alternatively, you can attend online meetings, very common these days, in front of the calm Seto Inland Sea, giving you the chance to make a dramatic appearance.
