Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze correlations about the actual condition of coworking spaces in Japan, based on a questionnaire survey. A way of working called "coworking" and a place for such work called "coworking space" have been attracting attention in recent years because they may provide a more flexible work style, diverse members to interact with, and open spaces than are experienced when working in a specific company or corporate office. However, the understanding of this phenomenon is insufficient. There is still hardly any empirical research that discusses the actual conditions of coworking and coworking spaces especially in Japan, though we can find some implicative descriptive papers on this phenomenon. Thus, we attempt to shed some light on the current status of coworking spaces in the following steps. Firstly, we review previous studies about coworking, focusing primarily on the annual Global Coworking Survey conducted around the world. Secondly, we show the result of correlation analysis based on a questionnaire survey conducted among almost all coworking spaces operating in Japan from six viewpoints: facility, management organization, business strategy, activity, space users, and performance.
