Stay longer, play longer, relax longer and enjoy longer
Long stays are an ideal way to manage work-life balance.
Not everyone would classify themselves as a digital nomad. (The ability to spend ones entire life resort hopping to escape what most people experience as a normal work week). Nor would everyone want that kind of lifestyle.
But I am sure there are few of us who wouldn't relish the opportunity to pursue our hobby in the ideal location while managing to cover the responsibility and obligations of our careers.
Well, one of the very few positive effects of the Coronavirus pandemic is the relaxing of traditional workplace expectations in Japan. Telework, workation, bleisure and remote work are all words to describe how one can pursue their passion and cover responsibilities of work.
Yes but does it really work?
Last year saw the first wave of guests, who didn't have "retired" on their CV, migrate to Niseko during the winter for extended stays. We hosted guests for stays between 15 and 61 days! Yes, 61 days of remote work.
Whole families, corporate teams and individuals made the trek north from the large metropolises of Honshu and enjoyed some of the best snow in a decade. All the while keeping on top of tasks and commitments.
There is no way I can miss this meeting!
One word ZOOM. The phenomenon of ZOOM meetings has really facilitated the ability of students, professionals and families to stay in touch throughout the pandemic. Vacation Niseko has solid high speed WI-FI in all of its properties. Each unit has it's own connection and router. There is no shared service between guests, unless you are using public WI-FI in the lobby.
And if ZOOM is not really an option, Niseko is a reasonable drive from Chitose International Airport. Tokyo is only 90 minutes away. Same day travel is possible.
There is no better time to make this happen. With international travel expected to be at low levels again, access to the best snow without long lift lines, crowded slopes and high demand make it an ideal time to reserve an extended stay. Not to mention the world class dining options, shopping, nature, quiet and clean air. There are many things to do outside of skiing or snowboarding. Down time with family can be spent doing activities together at Hanazono Adventure Park for example. Kids camps, indoor rock climbing, igloo building and much more are all available to you.
