The Toyko Metro station is a well-known underground transportation platform located in Japan and the area has recently been updated to include wooden subway workstations for commuters to use during downtime. The stations are constructed using wood panels and offer a secluded space for consumers to finish up some work or make a phone call in the underground area.

The workstations help to accommodate the on-the-go lifestyle of many business travellers, giving them a space to complete necessary tasks while they wait for their train. The stations are comprised of thin wooden panels that offer warmth to the concrete stations. The panels also allow for privacy while retaining a flow to the overall station. The booths include an added power outlet, hooks and mirror.
