The “Amusement Workation” package is available from October 15 at the park. For the price of 1,900 yen ($18) for one person and 3,600 yen ($34) for a pair, guests can set themselves up in a poolside “work booth” complete with table, chairs (of both the office and deck variety), Wi-Fi and outlets.
If that’s not enough of an incentive, the package includes the option to spend up to one hour remote working from inside the Ferris wheel, which is also Wi-Fi equipped.
And when the work day is done, workers can check out all the other attractions inside the park, including laser tag, a botanical garden, a haunted house, Go-Karts and a roller coaster called Bandit. (They will have to pay extra fees, though.)
Yomiuriland’s Ferris wheel will soon be open to remote workers in search of a change of scenery.

The East and West Japan Theme Park Associations, a group of theme park operators who oversee attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Tokyo Disneyland, advised that guests keep their masks on and “scream in your heart” instead.
Yomiuriland’s package does not insist that customers wear masks, but they would be strongly cautioned to do so.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has caused many destinations around the world, particularly those whose economy relies heavily on tourist dollars, to come up with other ways to entice visitors.
Unlike those beachfront spots, though, Yomiuriland will only be able to sell those day passes to Japanese residents until the country opens up for tourism.
