After meeting and studying at a Japanese language school together, Davide and John start working on a project that will make the process of living and studying in Japan much easier. The idea for Go! Go! Nihon is born.
The service and website is launched with Italian, Swedish, and English language support. There is an immediate positive reception to the service and the first long-term students start the October session that year.
Due to the multi-level support offered in 3 languages, more than 100 students use Go! Go! Nihon to live and study in Japan. K.K. GoGo World is formally established.
The team decide that they need a real office. They find a perfect location in Nishi-Waseda, Shinjuku and get back to assisting students. The team expands to 4 full-time staff to support the growth of the service. Our first ever Go! Go! Nihon Summer Course is launched.
Italian, Swedish, and English language support experience incredible growth. The service is proven and the students love the level of support that they receive. Spanish language support is added to assist Spanish speaking students to realize their dreams of studying in Japan.
With the help of the 4 languages that were supported, over 500 students used Go! Go! Nihon to live and study in Japan. The Summer Course, also, became wildly popular with 80 students from all over the world joining to experience 3 weeks in Tokyo.
With the increased need of the services from other countries, French and German language support was added. Reached a milestone of helping 1,000 students to live and study in Japan this particular year.
Go! Go! Nihon added Indonesian language support to break into the Southeast Asian market.
Go! Go! World opened a branch office in Seoul for gogohanguk.com Live and Study in Korea, and in Madrid for gogoespana.com Live and Study in Spain.
Our team comes from over 13 different countries!
Davide came to Japan in 2008 to study Japanese. At that time, there wasn't a service like Go! Go! Nihon and it was extremely difficult for him to choose the right language school, accommodation, and get familiar with the different culture. He decided to start Go! Go! Nihon to help more people to have the best experience of their life and come to live and study in Japan!
A firm believer in Go! Go! Nihon due to being one of the first students to use the service, Chris was asked to join the team in 2011. After helping start the International Team, he is now trying to make sure Go! Go! Nihon operates as smoothly as possible for all students. He works tirelessly to share his life-changing experience of studying abroad with everyone.
School Coordinator Manager
Azusa studied English in the US and when she applied to school, she used a Japanese agent who helped Japanese students to study abroad. When she came back to Japan, she started thinking to help students to come to Japan and then decided to work in Go! Go! Nihon. Now her role is to deal with schools not students, but she is willing to help as much as possible!
Student Coordinator Manager
Catherine used to live in Korea before Japan, but once she landed, she immediately fell in love with the country and decided studying Japanese had to be the next step in her life. With Go! Go! Nihon’s help, she came to study Japanese in 2015 and has worked at the company since then. She is grateful for the opportunity and looks forward to helping other people come to Japan and experience this great country.
