Why KiKO?

We all have limited time to get away and explore the world. Yet, numerous studies have shown that experiential travel promotes creativity, decreases stress, and increases happiness. In short, traveling heightens the areas of our personal and professional lives we are looking to grow.

KiKO Japan is a bilingual and bicultural tour operator and travel advisor with local contacts across Japan and the US that aim to provide an intimate journey for you. At KiKO, we aim to tap into what makes you move and design the right trip for you.

The average traveler spends over 30 hours and visits more than 40 websites to plan their vacations. There is a lot of information out there and planning can come with frustration around how to maximize your time, wondering if one person’s review matches your tastes, and narrowing your trip goals to meet your travel dates.

We are here for you. Japan and US travel is our passion and our expertise. We understand the challenges of jet lag, traveling with small children, to stretching yourself thin spending more time on trains than experiencing the sounds, tastes, paths, and culture you journeyed for. We want you to experience something new, broaden perspective, and get the most out of your travel.

Let KiKO Japan take you there!

What our travelers are saying about KiKO

I have some vacation time scheduled for February. Talking with KiKO, we designed a trip I wouldn’t have thought up without them. I will be heading north to the Sapporo Snow Festival and taking in some of the winter festivities of Hokkaido.

KiKO created a beautiful itinerary that covered everything we wanted to do in Japan. If you want an off-the-beaten-path experience, they’ll go above and beyond to help you plan your dream trip.

Nothing is more exciting than landing in Japan and opening your phone to see a fully booked trip based on all of our hotel and eating preferences and exploration desires.
