With the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan has been experiencing an increased demand for public working spaces. As a result, mobile offices that are the size of phone booths have been installed all over the country.

The rise of Telecubes or mobile offices was first reported in 2019 by Japanese media after Mitsubish Estate announced its plan to roll out tiny, cozy offices at train stations and airports around the country. The aim is to assist remote workers. The idea was to have these micro-offices installed everywhere, making them available for people.

People can work near their houses or while on a business trip. At the same time, they can enjoy a quiet space and privacy, which venues like shared offices or coffee shops can’t always offer. And after the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for these offices began to grow at an unprecedented rate.

Recently, SoraNews24 reported that people living in Japan could find these Telecubes offices in 7-Eleven convenience stores, bringing convenience to a brand new level. Around the country, you can find more than 100 such public offices. But in the next few years, the figure is expected to cross 1,000.

These Telecubes can be set up either indoors or outdoors. They come in a solo format or a model for multiple people if you need to organize face-to-face meetings.

In 2018, Mitsubishi Estate rent out its private Telecubes by the hour in its own buildings in Tokyo. The low cost and the flexibility have made them extremely popular.
