About

In 1954, he reached the final of the Canadian National Championships but lost in straight sets to Bernard Bartzen.
In 1955, Kamo Kosei won the U.S. National Championships men's doubles title at the Longwood Cricket Club in Boston with compatriot Atsushi Miyagi after a five-set victory over Americans Gerald Moss and Bill Quillian. Hurricane Diane roared through New England in August 1955, flooding the tennis courts and delaying the tournament for a week. When the tournament resumed many of the leading players such as Ken Rosewall, Tony Trabert, Lew Hoad and Vic Seixas had already left which devalued the men's doubles draw.
With this win, he and Atsushi Miyagi became the first Japanese doubles to win a Grand Slam tournament.
Kamo won the Japanese tennis championships in 1953 and 1956.
From 1953 to 1959, he played in the Japanese Davis Cup team.
The Tokyo native, who served as an adviser to the association, teamed up with Miyagi at the 1955 Davis Cup to defeat the Philippines and give Japan its first-ever victory in the eastern zone final.
