Founder's
Message

I founded IGLOOO in December 2015 at the age of 35. I chose the city of Kamakura as the location to establish the company. The origin of our company name is a play on words between Kamakura, where we were founded, and "kamakura," which means a house made of snow in Japanese. Originally, IGLOOO was spelled normally with two O's, but I decided to add another 'O' to give the company name more energy.


We currently have five offices in Tokyo, Kamakura, Kyoto, Fukuoka, and Okinawa, but our employees are active all over Japan.


We promote the various regions of Japan through inbound travel marketing and cross-border eCommerce.


I desire to share the charm of Japan and create fans of Japan all over the world, especially outside of Asia, where information about Japan is not easily available in the local languages.


Specifically, we are targeting Europe, America, Australia, and the Middle East, using not only English, but also French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Arabic. IGLOOO is continually working to create a bridge between Japan and the rest of the world by sharing authentic, accurate, and up-to-date information about Japan in various languages.


Eventually, we would like to expand our business to Central and South America and Africa. We aim to be the most vital company in Asia by expanding the appeal of Asia to the rest of the world as part of Asia, not just Japan.



Our aim: to be the world’s best company in creating lasting memories through cultural exchange.
