while the revitalization of a community establishes greater trust within it.

Lifetsyle content network

By creating a cross-cultural platform, we aim to promote greater opportunities to welcome more international visitors and residents to Japan. Local enterprises and organizations in Japan can also tap onto our network to share about your products and services that might be specific to different regions in Japan.

we are more than just an agent to help process cumbersome application procedures such as lease contracts and notifications. We are also actively involed in building a society where international residents can easily intergate into, in spite of differences in cultural and language.


Where Japan enthusiasts convene and connect

The world's largest community platform for international residents living in Japan. In addition to using the database for marketing, we will develop a B2B platform to offer content sharing and media services as well as sales support for our community members. Also, we will set up lounges in major Japanese cities (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo, Fukuoka, etc.) where many international visitors gather, to consult and interact with each other and act as the center of an international multicultural community in Japan.


All that we do is for the creation of a diverse society
where people can be themselves no matter who they are.

Anybody who has lived abroad has undoubtedly faced a number of hurdles in creating a life for themselves.
How many international visitors would be able to settle in Japan,
if they had the support of an enterprise that made these hurdles the main concern and basis for their business?
How many people would be able to develop an even deeper love for Japan?

In our current age of information and automatization, we believe individuality is of the utmost importance.
We are adamant about creating a society in which each individual is able to live in their own way.

Spinning individuality, weaving thoughts
The spinning of individual threads of expressions and the weaving of these threads into a strong cloth – this is the motif for our logo. By bringing different kinds of individuals together, we hope to take their thoughts and ideas and weave them into new shared values. The "MOTTO" in our name refers to both the meanings of the Japanese 'motto'(i.e. [mot.to], meaning "more" in Japanese) and the English 'motto' (i.e. [mɒt.oʊ]).

When goals and dreams are unclear, one can make their life more rich and meaningful by delving further into their personal interests, come to love them even more ([mot.to]), and manifest their life's meaning ([mɒt.oʊ]) through their efforts. In our logo, this “MOTTO” is split into two parts (thoughts) represented by two “M”s - one above the other. With the cooperation of CO&CO we will work towards creating a society in which people can live as they are.
In cooperation with The World Lounge CO&CO, a community builder that brings together people from all over the world, Motto Japan aims to to make living in Japan more fun, enriching and rewarding. Operating multiple language schools, cafes and bars, select bookstores, as well as coworking spaces, CO&CO has won many awards as "the world's best Japanese language school". Since its establishment, CO&CO has had more than 3,000 members coming from 40 different countries (as of April 2018). Based on this solid track record, we aim to create a diversity society together with Motto Japan.
