I'll lay my cards on the table and admit that I don't go a bundle on horror films, but that I do enjoy Japanese movies
Sadly, I just couldn't get into this one. My (Japanese) wife borrowed the DVD from her friend and watched it last night - today she told me it was "scary" and that she had enjoyed it. Please bear in mind that my wife's favourite film of all time is Mannequin(!)
This afternoon I sat down to watch the disc myself - I switched it off after 30 minutes because, basically, it was just wasting my time.
Dark, dull and unengaging, Kairo is a Ringu wannabe but it has neither the script or the pace to come anywhere close. Reading the other comments on here it seems that Kairo is popular with others, so maybe you need to be a horror fan to appreciate it.
