Items from history, nurtured along with nature, linking to the future.
Originating in Nihonbashi, Tokyo,
which is home to Omi merchants, and where people, things,
and information from around the world intersect,
COCOSHIGA serves a base for sharing information on Shiga prefecture.
Come immerse yourself in the culture of Shiga,
including events that communicate its charms from various viewpoints,
shop for Shiga specialties and traditional crafts,
visit a bar that offers locally brewed sake from various brewers,
and eat at a restaurant that serves meals made with plenty of Shiga ingredients,
such as Omi Beef. We look forward to seeing you here.
The name COCOSHIGA is packed with meaning such as "Shiga is here," "here is where you can find information on Shiga," and “if you come here, you’ll want to visit Shiga."
The logo is designed to look like a single Japanese-style brush stroke drawing of Lake Biwa,
with the Japanese characters for "COCO" like smiling eyes or mouths.
The "Shi (滋)" character incorporates a zigzag design to look like the reed grass found growing around Lake Biwa, representing our desire to share the rich natural resources of Shiga.
