Larger Coworking Operators in Saga See coworking companies with multiple locations in Saga
Neighboring the city of Fukuoka and in fact within the Greater Fukuoka metropolitan area, Saga is the capital city of the prefecture by the same name sitting on Kyushu Island with a population of around the 234,453 mark. It borders the Ariake Sea to the south and the Fukuoka Prefecture to the southeast and in the north you will find the Sefuri Mountains. For meat lovers this will be heaven, as it is home to the buttery Saga beef, so make sure you have your binges on this delectable taste treat. If you are not into your meat on a plate, it is also known for its ornate ceramic ware particularly pottery pieces. Awash in temples, shrines and picturesque hot spring spots with traditional baths, it is more a rural enclave than a bustling township. Coworking venues have popped up in its' streets to cater to wandering nomads with laptops in tow who wish to get some work done after their hot tub experience, as well as its' intrepid locals that are over worrying about the stigma of failure.
Saga is where you will find one of the rarest castles in the whole of Japan (it's made of wood) and where you can climb the inner towers to peer over the whole of the city. If you happen to be there between March and May then you can check out the beautiful cherry blossoms in Sagajo Park, whilst you take a jog around the gardens' track. The Yoshinogari Park is an archeological wonder with ancient pits (some 2,000 in number) of tombs and rooms dating back to 300BC to 300AD for the history buffs to get really excited about.
Japan has a growing startup scene with many focused on health care, agritech, Internet of Things, enterprise software and artificial intelligence within their own domestic market, which just happens to be the 3rd biggest in the world giving them a home-turf advantage. Coworking venues have become the place to be when it comes to mingling with likeminded souls and tucking into a bit of sashimi or sliced raw fish when the hunger pangs attack.
