    I think it is one of the expressions that is not used in other language very often.
    The feeling that we have with this word is "from me, too", "it is I who should say so", "the one who should say so is me", etc.

    For example:
    A: Nice to meet you. (よろしくおねがいします。)
    B: Nice to meet you, too. (こちらこそよろしくおねがいします。)

    A: Thank you so much. (どうもありがとうございます。)
    B: Thank you, too. (こちらこそ、ありがとうございます。)
    (It is I who should say "thank you".)

    I hope this was helpful.

    Use after よろしく always helps.
