The term “workation” has become popular with the spread of telework. Workation is a portmanteau of “work” and “vacation,” referring to a work style where you take a vacation while working in tourist destinations or when visiting your hometown. Some hotels are offering plans, facilities, and amenities tailored to workation. In this article, we’ll focus on the Osaka area and introduce accommodations and hotels suitable for workation.
