Welcome to CoCoMo Japan Travel

CoCoMo means “here too” in Japanese. The number of tourists from overseas is increasing year by year. Just 10 years ago, there were only about 6 million inbound tourists a year, but last year, there were more than 30 millions. This year, Tokyo hosts the Tokyo Olympics, so the government aims at 40 million people.

We need to increase the number of repeat tourists to achieve that goal. We want them to mingle with local people, and guide them to local secret hangouts, and let them know the real Japan and become a fan of Japan. We believe that this will lead to more repeat.

We will do our best to realize your dreams, such as “I don’t want to go somewhere crowded with tourists,” “I have come to Japan many times, so I want to see something different,” “I want to see unique scenery and locally famous delicious ramen,” and so on.

We have lived in Japan for more than a decade and love Japan.

I took part in the group tour of Kyoto. We were lucky to be accompanied by Ryoji Shimada, who is both the leader of the group and a professionally licensed tour guide. The tour lasted from morning to night and Ryoji showed us all the best places in Kyoto where we could see the wonderful autumn colours. We went to famous and popular temples and shrines, but Ryoji also took us to special interesting and beautiful places which are unknown to the general hordes of tourists. I especially enjoyed the light-up of the temples after dark during the autumn foliage season and the tour around Gion at night. An unexpected bonus was the half-day tour to beautiful places around Lake Biwa in Shiga-ken for those who were staying an extra day on Sunday 25th November. I would thoroughly recommend Ryoji as a tour guide and am sure if you decide to go with him, you won't regret your choice!

Just took a Kyoto trip with my family (4 adults) under the guides of Mr. Ryoji from Cocomo. It was a wonderful trip that my family and me had never experienced before. I had come to Japan twice but for business trips in Tokyo only, so this time, I wanted to 'be cared' and think nothing about job :D. My family loves nature and wanted a simple but memorable trip. Then we came up with an idea about Kyoto and found this agency by through the internet since its price was reasonale but interesting itinerary we thought.
We chose the Kyoto landmarks - short hiking tour. And we was absolutely right to choose this agency. It was unique to hike in Kyoto I think. Fresh air and great view were things we got. Mr. Ryoji and his assistant were very cheerful and truly devoted. We really like the way they arranged our trip. He always took us to the sites at the time that was not too crowded or almost only we were there. We also like his amazing inf and stories about Kyoto and Japan what I am sure that we can't find on the internet.
Generally, some recommendations, Kyoto is very distntive and actually a must-visit place when you guys come Japan. Besides, for Cocomo, I have to say that they did make our trip in Kyoto.
Thank you guys so much indeed!

I had the pleasure to do a tour with Ryouji in autumn 2016 in Kyoto where he showed us the beautiful autumn leaves (koyo) for which Kyoto is famous!
It was a fantastic tour that I enjoyed very much and even though I have been living in Japan for many years now Ryouji managed to still make me see some aspects of Japanese traditions etc., from a different angle.
He is very knowledgeable about Kyoto and knows all the “secret” spots that would be difficult to find without a guide.
Kyoto is really packed during the autumn leave season but he was able to show us the above mentioned spots that are off the beaten track which were incredible beautiful, yet not overcrowded.
His explanations about the city, its history, Japanese customs etc. where spot on, informative, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.
I would recommend anyone interested in seeing Kyoto to book a tour with him to get the most out of the experience. Thumps up for his tours!
