From Friday 19th to Sunday 21st, Pablo & Keisuke from Tsunagaru Edutech team participated in a workcation program in Kama City. With a population about 38,000 (as of february 2020) this rural city is located in the center of Fukuoka Prefecture, surrounded by natural forests and the headwaters of the Onga River flow from south to north. The whole city, approximately 72% of the body is forest and cultivated land, rich in water and greenery area. It remains historic sites and legend remain in various places. This workcation program was hosted by local government and community. Tsunagaru team was part of an international and Japanese group from different nationalities and countries (Japan, Italy, Chile-Australia, South Korea)
The trend survey of Nikkei BP, a business magazine publisher, finds that the index score of ‘Workcation’ is rapidly rising, which means the keyword draws much more attentions as an option of new working styles with COVID-19 in Japan.
The highest growth rate in the category of consumption potentiality was seen ‘Workcation’ with a score of 3.32 (+0.44), followed by ‘Multi-habitation (a score of 3.31),’ which may illustrate that Japanese working styles or lifestyles have changed since the COVID-19 crisis occurred.
We participated in different social events, dinner and Bbqs. We connected and established networking with participants, local authorities and Workation staff. Tsunagaru Edutech contributed with them assisting with filling surveys, feedback, explore network and dissemination these events with a global and international audience.
We attended pottery workshop how to create pottery; hosted by Kama city artist. We also learnt how to make Konjac by a group of senior ladies. Konjac is a natural food that has been part of the Japanese diet for many years and has been used in cooked foods, stir-fry, and other dishes.
Rainforest and sauna were incredible good and helped us to re-connect with nature, recharged energy, enjoyed delicious camping snacks prepared by local tour guides. OTO (UBI) Tachihiko is a local artist and he presented a live performance in this majestic natural scenario.
