"Work in Residence" program for long-term stays for creative individuals.

When you have a task you want to concentrate on, why not stay in the forest with clean, clear air and a tranquility not found in the city? Wake up in the morning and take a walk in the mountains. Make some coffee, give yourself some quiet time, and then start your day’s work. You can work calmly while keeping away from the hustle of the city. (If you have something you need to do, you can easily access the city in about 30 minutes. Wisely use your time.)

Work in Residence

At ROKKONOMAD, we have prepared a “work-in-residence” program for creative people for them to stay in a private room or dormitory for 2 to 4 weeks so that they can concentrate on their projects. How does it sound to wake up in a quiet space in the mountains, and be able to concentrate on your work? There are facilities necessary for staying, such as a communal work space, a kitchen where you can cook freely, and a living room where you can relax. Once you have sorted your thoughts, it’s good to take a walk in the mountains or ride a bicycle for a change of pace.

Program Fee  (Subject to change)
Two Weeks…Private Room ¥60,000 per person       Dormitory ¥35,000 per person
Four Weeks…Private Room ¥100,000 per person Dormitory ¥55,000 per person
*Prices do not include tax.

There is no strict definition of what a creator is, since there are no large workshop facilities, we think the space is suitable for the following types of people.

Novelists, poets, playwrights, translators, photographers, architects, filmmakers, sculptures writers, composers, sound artists, illustrators, designers, chiefs, and others.
