The website enables visitors to confirm extraordinary workplace information-a new proposal by Beppu, which boasts the most hot springs in Japan by volume and amount-and includes information on anti-infection measures taken, as well as information on Wi-Fi environment, conference room, and equipment rental, at inns and coworking spaces in Beppu.
The plan is to increase the number of inns posted on the website, introduce the experiences of companies that have actually set up workations in Beppu, and take other steps to propose Beppu as a good workation site.
