Japanese theme park becomes office

Ever wanted to have a Ferris wheel as an office? Well, a Japanese theme park has opened its doors to office workers.

Tokyo’s Yomiuriland, is now opened as a space for people to come and work.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing has meant people can’t work the same way they used to.

Lots of people have had to work from home. However, Yomiuriland saw an opportunity and now lets workers use their facilities.

So far about ten customers have used the park as their office.

It costs 1,900 Japanese Yen per person per day, which is about $25, and the park is hoping it will help to make up for money lost from having to close during the pandemic.
