About どこ

どこ is one of the forms of the どれ family of words used to enquire about unknown things. In this case it asks about a place. Just like どれ represents 'which', どこ represents 'which place', or simply 'where'.
  • 明日(あした)どこ()
    Where do you want to go tomorrow?
  • 牛乳(ぎゅうにゅう)どこります
    Where is the milk located?
Caution
どこ should not be confused with どっち, a similar word which is also sometimes translated as 'where'. どっち focuses more on the direction that one is/is going, where どこ focuses purely on 'which place'.
  • どっち(みぎ)(ひだり)?
    Which way? Right? Left? (Focuses on the direction of movement)
  • ここどこです
    Where is this place? (Focuses on the location)

Examples

  • どこ()きます

    Where are you going?

  • すみませんこの(ほん)どこあります

    Excuse me, but where can I find this book?

  • ここどこ

    Where is here?

    Roughly translates to 'What is this place?'.

  • どこいい
