HafH Coliving Project Round 3

Since April 2020, HafH has been running a Coliving Project where we look for people to become residents at our directly run coliving properties for 3 months at a time. We received such great feedback from round 1 and 2 of our HafH Coliving Project, that we’ve decided to run a 3rd round.

Coinciding with the global pandemic, we’ve seen a huge rise in the number of people working remotely.

As a precaution to the threat of COVID-19, many people were all of a sudden confronted with a new style of working that they just weren’t prepared for, leaving some confused in the initial stages. Now, as we’ve become more accustomed to working remotely, more and more people have come to realise that there really isn’t a need for them to have to go into the office to do their job.

While many companies have decided to adapt and continue to work remotely, others have decided to return to the office and the traditional style of working.

While remote work has been used as a precautionary method in fighting the spread of COVID-19, the essence of remote work is actually about allowing the individual to create a workstyle that suits them, and allows them to choose when and where to work from.

Now that we know we can work from home, why not get out of your house for the next 3 months, and have a change of scenery!
A new way to enjoy working remotely, and so many possible opportunities and encounters await!

HafH Goto THE PIER is located in Goto City in the Goto Archipelago – part of Nagasaki Prefecture’s Outer Islands, and at Japan’s westernmost point. THE PIER was so popular during Round 1 & 2 of HafH Coliving Project, that it booked out both times immediately after announcing that we were accepting applications!

Goto not only has some of the most beautiful beaches in Japan, it has also seen a huge population growth, with about 200 people in the space of a year, move to the island. If you want to experience island living in Japan, this is your chance!
