Yomiuriland In Japan Allows People To Work From A Ferris Wheel
This has got to be the quirkiest office ever! Located 30 minutes from Tokyo’s city centre, Yomiuriland is now offering workation packages, permitting guests to work from the family-friendly attraction. Remote workers can have their own, cute work station overlooking a pool, complete with a working desk, Wi-Fi and power socket.
The package also includes tickets to a giant Ferris wheel, from where guests can co-work for up to an hour. The capsules are fully equipped with WiFi, which means you can have a zoom call in the sky or even complete your work with an added adrenaline rush. The package costs from 1,900 yen ($17.99) on weekdays or 2,000 yen ($18.94) on weekends and public holidays.

Japan Asks Theme Park Visitors To Avoid Screaming On Roller Coasters
Theme parks in Japan have asked people to stop screaming when on a rollercoaster. Shouting, hooting, and cheering in theme parks will be banned along with a set of other protocols, when the parks reopen.
Japan is home to some world famous theme parks including Tokyo Disneyland, DisneySea, and Universal Studios Japan. The idea behind the new rule is pretty simple and logical. Screaming causes droplets to transfer one person to another, thereby increasing the risk of infection. Besides, some park employees cannot wear facemasks at all times, due to their nature of work. This will in turn put them on a high-risk zone.
Apart from no-screaming, authorities have also amped up sanitation, and are encouraging face masks, temperature checks, and social distancing. In addition, conversations between people are said to kept minimal, with the increased use of hand and eye gestures.
