A castle town in the Fukushima Prefecture known for its award-winning sake and samurai traditions, Aizuwakamatsu was a battleground of the Boshin War in 1868 when feudal leaders had a bit of a bloody tiff. Fringed by mountains with Mount Bandai the regional landmark, Aizuwakamatsu is a playground for those into hiking and skiing. The natural scenery is absolutely stunning, as Aizuwakamatsu sits on Japan's Honshu Island. With a population of around the 122,715 mark, the city is the main transport hub for the region. Today the city retains its rich samurai history, so it is little wonder that coworking venues have opened up to cater to its' descendants of warriors.
From its traditional teahouses serving green tea and wagashi (sweets) to its towering white Tsuruga Castle with a distinctive red-tiled roof, Aizuwakamatsu is absolutely beautiful when the cherry blossoms appear and the swans gather en masse upon the vast Lake Inawashire. If you are feeling under the weather or merely curious check out the Oyakuen that is a medicinal garden from the 14th Century complete with villa and teahouse fringed by a spring. If you love tradition, this is when you can have an authentic tea ceremony. From stuffing your face with the local dish "sauce-katsu" to meandering the quaint little road of Nanukamachi Street where you can pick up anything from lacquer ware to Japanese sweets, you will have plenty to entertain you.
Japan has a growing startup scene where many have the privilege of being able to stay private for a long time with sizable rounds of funding generating growth, rather than having to go public too soon and coming unstuck in an attempt to please shareholders. Japanese startups tend to focus on the domestic market due to the language barrier, which is actually the world's 3rd biggest market giving a home-turf advantage. Foreign competitors have trouble attempting to infiltrate the Japanese market, as it is relatively closed off to outsiders. Coworking venues are awash in local innovative tech gurus who collaborate and connect by the day and indulge in a little bit of sake at night.
