CO-OP Kyosai Official Character "Co-suke"
Co-suke was born to share the idea and the slogan of "Co-operating for Future Livelihoods."
If you are in trouble, Co-suke will come to help you no matter how far away you are. Co-suke sometimes makes mistakes, but he will never give up, which you can understand from his favorite phrase "Let's go for it together!"
What is "Kyosai"?
Kyosai means mutual aid, especially helping each other. We decided to use the Japanese word "Kyosai" even in an English context, to introduce the unique idea of "Kyosai" internationally.
Mutual aid system based on the philosophy of the Co-op
CO-OP Kyosai is a mutual aid system in which members help each other by saying, "My premiums are useful for someone else." Co-ops across Japan aim to create a prosperous society through CO-OP Kyosai.
Co-op's approach in the field of insurance is to develop and nurture the necessary insurance products by CO-OP Kyosai that are born from the opinions and requests of its members.
CO-OP Kyosai and Member co-ops
CO-OP Kyosai is a federation of 361 consumer cooperative societies (as of March 20,2023) from across the nation. Each member Co-op is an independent legal entity running various businesses such as retail (supermarkets and weekly delivery services), medical care and nursing services, and total support servicies for college students. These co-ops are very close to their members both physically and mentally. In addition to their original services, the co-ops provide CO-OP Kyosai Products as one of their various services to their members in cooperation with the federation. One of the strengths of CO-OP Kyosai is this closeness of each member co-op and the policyholders.
About CO- OP Kyosai as the Federation
Japan CO-OP Insurance (Kyosai) Consumers' Co-operative Federation (avv. as CO-OP Kyosai) was established on November 5, 2008.
Up until 2008, the JCCU and member co-ops were engaged not only in mutual insurance business, but also retail business such as operating stores and providing home delivery services.
To avoid conflict with the newly revised Co-op Law in 2008, it was decided to jointly establish a new organization, CO-OP Kyosai, to specialize in providing mutual insurance products.
In 2021, CO-OP Kyosai changed its English name from Japan CO-OP Insurance Consumers' Co-operative Federation to Japan CO-OP Insurance (Kyosai) Consumers' Co-operative Federation. The abbreviation was also changed at the same time from from JCIF to "CO-OP Kyosai." Our organization decided to use the Japanese word "Kyosai" in our English name, which means mutual aid, especially helping each other, to introduce the unique idea of "Kyosai" internationally.
