Business Content

We are an IT startup that uses social innovation and new technology to develop multilingual communication tools to break the language barrier. Inbound tourism is one of the few options left for the economies of rural Japan, whose growth is stagnating due to a declining birthrate and aging population. However, the language barrier is one of the first obstacles that visitors face.
Much of the information found throughout Japan is untranslated, puzzling visitors. Our mission is to use state of the art technology to break down the language barrier. Specifically, we provide 3 services/solutions: Kotozna Chat, a translation chat app compatible with 109 languages, Kotozna Camera, which displays translations simply by taking photos, and Kotozna In-room, a multilingual system for use in accommodation facilities. We will continue to break down the language barrier around the world with our technology.
