■Comment from Nagasaki City Office

In Nagasaki City, international digital nomads have been getting more attention, ​considered a new inbound market, and efforts have begun towards attracting and ​accommodating them. Nagasaki city has the history of being the “sole gateway for ​international interactions” since Nagasaki's "Dejima" was the only place open to the ​outside world during Japan's isolation period. Leveraging its historical background, ​Nagasaki aims to create an acceptance system through community engagement, diversity ​enhancement, and fostering new exchanges, with the aim of generating opportunities for ​business matching.

■Comment from yugyo Inc. CEO, Ryo Osera

Dejima, the birthplace of mine, was the first place in Japan to accept cross-border ​workations. It could be considered the birthplace of workations. From 400 years ago, ​Nagasaki, where Dutch traders enjoyed Japan's culture while engaging in trade, has truly ​laid the groundwork for accepting digital nomads. I am genuinely delighted that Nagasaki ​has shown interest in and started preparing to embrace this new market. Moving forward, ​yugyo Inc., along with businesses in Nagasaki City and throughout the prefecture, aims to ​exert efforts to create opportunities for the new business prospects of the international city ​of Nagasaki.
