Where to stay in Tokyo?


in Tokyo, Japan by @mrwhite | 6yr  | 7 comments

Hello.

Any hints on good places to stay in Tokyo? Ideally near a friendly co-working space.

We are two people. We would prefer renting on a weekly basis so we can try things out the first week and then stay maybe for a month.

โ€“ Christian

PS: This fine article recommends airbnb and some houses catering to exchange students but I was looking for something a bit more specific:

I live in Shimokitazawa and recommend the neighborhood highly. Itโ€™s convenient to most places in Tokyo without being in the bustling area of steel and glass. Lots of great restaurants and cafes too. Thereโ€™s a small coworking space called Open Source Cafe with a 1,000 JPY daily rate including a coffee or other drink. They also have a monthly membership for 10,000 JPY.

Thanks for the hints.

We are still looking for more permanent accommodation - currently staying in an airbnb - but the value is no so good - price wise about the same as a business hotel.

Ps: can anyone recommend a gym in Tokyo that allows (cheap) drop in trainings and where the lack of residency is not a problem?

If I remember correctly, it is easy to drop in at Gold Gyms, but they are not cheap, like JPY1600 for one time.

You can check http://tokyocheapo.com/business/drop-in-coworking-spaces-tokyo/ for coworking spaces. The rest of the site also has plenty of tips about Tokyo.

Iโ€™m not sure if it helps, but Iโ€™ll post a link to the airbnb we used. Itโ€™s has metro stations, restaurants and everything you need nearby. I could see myself living easily in that area, but itโ€™s definitely not a tourist place. A quick googling suggests that some coworking spaces are 30-40 minute metro ride away.

Thanks - the place is not available for booking until the end of July though. But it seems like we will probably end up with AirBNB - at the moment we are at an APA Hotel.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info132 | 6h 6 hours ago | 2 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?

 

in Germany by @clara | 5d 4 days ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo | 12d 11 days ago | 0 comments

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Anyone up to explore some city which is kinda virus safe?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @germanrobert | 20d 20 days ago | 2 comments

Hello World!

I'm an experienced Digital Nomad and after being in Lockdown in Bangkok and Germany for one year I would like to team up with someone to visit a new place. Or just doing some exchange about what destinations would be interesting currently.

I take the virus seriously and still I think we can still be able to take our life in our own hands. So I'm aiming for cities/countries which are not in full lockdown, are not too complicated about immigration (I'm looking at you Thailand, your state quarantine costs like 1k USD and is basically a prison) and is also rather safe regarding the virus. I tend to stick for rather big cities and like culture. I'm not a beach or nature person. I'm pretty flexible about the money topic.

Where to live in Shikoku, Japan?

I want to live in Shikoku for two months. Iโ€™d like Shikoku, because of its beautiful nature, and preserved culture and tradition. Has anyone been there? Where could I base myself, apart from the 4 big cities (prefecture capitals)? Iโ€™d ideally like a town, 10 - 50.000 people population. Anyone with an idea? Thanks!

Has anyone registered a company in Japan as a means to acquiring a visa?


in Japan by @kko | 4yr 3 years ago | 1 comment

Iโ€™ve done reading on this topic but wanted to see if anyone actually had experience doing something like this personally. Iโ€™m thinking of setting up a GK (Godo Kaisha), which is equivalent to an LLC, as a branch of my Delaware-registered corporation for my startup, and granting myself a work visa through this new entity so that I can stay in Japan long-term.

Iโ€™m curious about how long the process can take, what the lawyer fees might look like, and what obligations one has post-incorporation. Thanks in advance!

Does anyone have practical experience of coworking in Kyoto, Japan?


in Kyoto, Japan by @jonlay | 5yr 4 years ago | 5 comments

Iโ€™m looking to take a trip to Japan and am considering a month in Osaka.

There are a few co-working spaces appearing online:

There are also some very old articles out there from 2012.

But most of the information online seems very dated and as a non-Japanese speaker, itโ€™s tricky to figure out whatโ€™s current, without emailing each of them via Facebook and trying to narrow down the list.

Anyone have any recent experiences or recommendations?

What are the more laidback towns in Japan?


in Japan by @cpury | 5yr 5 years ago | 10 comments

Hi nomads!

I really like Japan and would love to spend more time there (I know itโ€™s expensive!), but I generally dislike the stereotypical Asian city (aka soulless concrete jungles).

To define what I consider โ€œcoolโ€, I really like those young, laid-back, green and open places, where you can bike around and sit outside and meet people, even better with mountains, forests or beaches in range.

I havenโ€™t been to Tokyo (I just supposed it would be too big to fit my expectations), but there might be some good areas there. So far Matsuyama was the closest I found to a โ€œcoolโ€ place in Japan. Iโ€™ve met loads of laid-back โ€œanti-cultureโ€ people and even hardcore hippies from Japan, so Iโ€™m sure they must gather somewhere :smile:

Anyone has some hints where to find a place like this? Or a recommendation of a nice area in one of the big cities?

Iโ€™m currently in Sapporo for a week and have some work that I need to do urgently. Iโ€™ve been trying to find a cafe today but havenโ€™t managed to find anywhere that is quiet and has power outlets. Itโ€™s incredibly frustrating because I was hoping to get it done today.

Any suggestions?

Which Pocket Wi-Fi should I choose in Japan?


in Japan by @chrispking | 5yr 5 years ago | 9 comments

Hi

Does anyone have any recommendations for the โ€˜Pocket Wi-Fiโ€™ network in Japan? Thereโ€™s a few options Iโ€™m considering including UQ Wimax, au, NTT Docomo and Y Mobile. UQ Wimax and au look like better products for the money so likely Iโ€™ll go with one of them (saying that all of the products/hardware in Japan is exceptional)โ€ฆ

Specifically interested in experiences and recommendations of the wireless network coverage, reliability etc.

Iโ€™ll be predominantly based in Osaka for the next six months, however, I will be travelling for one or two months. Certainly, Iโ€™ve got a short trip to Kyushu planned and will be doing a nationwide JR Pass train tripโ€ฆso will need access whilst travelling on the shinkansen (bullet train).

Anyone had any experience of UQ Wimax or au wireless networks?

Thanks

Is Fukuoka, Japan a good city for nomads?


in Fukuoka, Japan by @dries | 5yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

Dear Nomads,

Fukuoka is increasingly mentioned as an affordable location to live in Japan and as a more easygoing alternative to bustling Tokyo. Itโ€™s just across the pond to South-Korea (3 hours by boat), has a well connected airport and has recently been chosen by Monocle as one of the most liveable cities (nr 12).

I would love to welcome Fukuoka on the Nomadlist, so letโ€™s gather some intel here. What was your experience with the city? How much did you pay for rent, food and other? How to go about getting short-stay appartments? Please share!
