We established KOZY ZIPANG in May 24th 2014 to support travelers and to promote cross-cultural exchange.
Hashimoto City in Wakayama Prefecture is located at the foot of Koyasan which is a part of world heritage "Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range."

Hello, my name is Kozo Hyakuno.
Sometimes I was asked the direction to Koyasan from tourists in the train or in the Hashimoto station. Gradually, I became wanting to support them to enjoy and make wonderful memories in Japan. Meanwhile, I recognized that cross-cultural exchange could be a small step to overcome "the frictions caused by differences" existing around the world. So I launched KOZY ZIPANG in May 2014.
Please don't hesitate to contact us when planning to journey to Japan, we will be useful for you to enjoy Japan. Thank you.
