KITO, Naoko
Co-Founder, Director

My mission is to enrich today.
When we recognize that we only live once, we are reminded how precious each and every day is.
HIGH5 was born out of a desire to be close to those in need and to help them in any way we can.
We need foreigners to come and live in Japan, but Japan is not yet cosmopolitan.
Having lived outside of Japan for more than 20 years, I wish to take part in making Japan a place where both Japanese and foreigners can live in peace and in prosperity.

Co-Founder, Director

My mission is to keep upgrading the standards of the norm.
It is my job to identify “small discrepancies” in services and advance them to the “big growth” of the organization.
