Tomohiko Yaneda Write down your own impression:

The opening of the Terminal shows that people are interested in this new space, and I really think that people are getting more and more interested in working on the work of the nomadic people. In this age, interaction with others is part of the work and is no longer subject to specific locations.

New Work Founder Tony Bacigalupo has seen at least four work community spaces, and he mentioned Paxi House as well as a carrot restaurant:

Paxi House joins the work community spaces and restaurants to compete with these chain stores, and the … cafes and restaurants must have a strong view of how these tenants are successful and how they can use their small scale features."Paxi House is an extreme case that directly combines small restaurants and working communities, and I am pleased to see more similar places appear and succeed.""

Newly startuber, Samurai Incubate, announced recently that it will create a working community space for its startup company, the number one number two, technology writer Masaru Iketa in , and other startup facilities in Map :

" In Tokyo, there are many working community spaces and offices that are supported by the center.

Real estate developer Mori Building is also in this business, creating the Mobile Library and Workcommunity Space within the Six Bemwood skyscrapers:

"This is the boldest attempt, syncretic library and work community, we visited the 49th floor of the office building and the space was big.""

Existing cafes and cafeteras, @elm200 mentioned , operating more than 45 years of chain cafe Renoir Cafe, offering free wireless networks and receptacles to consumers.

The Renoir branch of Shibuya's Sakurai, this Renoir branch of the Renoir, is more popular than in the past, and the interior decoration has improved, and it has succeeded in attracting customers such as the curfew and the banding.

Because the work community space is open and shared, there are many information on the network, various space and activity in the Facebook group , and people from time to time share a variety of messages about the nomadic population, such as @TakuyaKawai :

McDonald's on the first floor of the "Six Wood Chupe" has not yet been found."

The network activity does not just end with sharing information; on the Japanese public-sponsored platform Campfire , co-ba most recently successfully raised the site, Jelly Jelly Cafe and Save Our Ass plan to buy featured seats.

Multiple social media Crowy can be reintroduced due to results various contacts and cooperation :

Today, thanks to the one lucky meeting in August, the programmer Yuya Yoshida is been working with Crowy since August, and has invited other working community space members to test and provide feedback."

Kenji904 recently set up PAX Coworking next to Paxi House, where working community space is often aggregated for free workers, while he is creating a Tokyo business center in Aichi Prefecture to provide fabric printing services.

He explains the reason for the opening:

-Tokyo information speed and quality are optimal, and are unparalleled.
-Information technology and network knowledge are becoming more and more necessary.
-Rather than being killed with competitors, it is better to develop new business.
-It is important to work with designers and network industries.

And the strategy he takes is:

" Working community space provides informal relationships that we are looking for in unwits, I think it's like a social website that reappears in the real world.Each space has a " space accelerant ", which is like a bartender. In the early stage of the culture and atmosphere of plastic space, all new people are welcome to come. After several times, everyone becomes a catalyst in different styles."
