ABOUT

MISSION

Building
Better
Connections

We believe that society is enriched through connecting people with new experiences. This is the aim of our company.

Relux, whose service is facilitating reservations for first class accommodations and Japanese Ryokan, exists to help people discover the charms and new experiences each part of Japan has to offer: travelers and lodging, explorers and new regions, Japan and the world!
It is our mission to create these one-of-a-kind connections.

This business has been built from the ground up to facilitate these experiences to the benefit of society and the world at large.

VISION

Travel agency
which represents Asia

Bring a more satisfying travel experience to more people.
That is what we value above all else.
With the high aim of sharing the story of Japan through first-hand travel and experiences, as part of our mission of connecting people from all over the world, and to become the face of Asian travel, Relux is here to establish those links, one great hotel reservation at a time.

Loco Partners has laid out five tenants,
deemed to as "Locoship," to be the directing foundation
by which our organization, and products,
may continue to grow.

BE HONEST BE HONEST

"Be Honest," in numbers, to people, and with ourselves. While fair-weather honesty is easy, it must persevere turbulence as well in order to properly meet challenges head on. We must not divert our gaze from hard facts.

ONE TEAM ONE TEAM

"One Team," is the idea that success is the responsiblity of the whole. With each member of our One Team working in stride our customers will reap the greatest benefits and the company will continue to flourish, thus enriching the experiences of each colleague.

OWNERSHIP OWNERSHIP

"Ownership" is the ideal that each individual must claim their own challenges to overcome. In tackling these learning experiences the whole team is propelled forward, sharing that momentum. Ownership means being fully conscious about these oppurtunities that the passive eye may not see.

ROCKET SPEED ROCKET SPEED

"Rocket Speed," embodies the notion that action is the shortest path to growth, and fastest way to increasing value for our customers. Approaching each project with such vigor only increases the speed by which we meet these goals. Afterall, it's better to be great at five things than perfect at only one.

FAIL HARDER FAIL HARDER

"Fail Harder," is advice to anyone afraid of failure. The fear of failure has haulted so many dreams before they even started. Be bold, strategic, and unbridaled, for that is the way to make an impact. Success is the peak atop the mountain called failure - and the harder we fail, the better prepared we become to lead in the future.
