Hi, I’m Justin. I live in Tokyo and IKIMASHO! is the digital home to all my writing and photography from Japan – as well as any trips I make outside the country.
The aim of this site is to show you the gentler, quieter side of Tokyo. Daily life. The simple things that we walk past every day: the half-closed shutter; the bicycle that has been left out to rust; the empty sake bottle sitting outside a house. Having lived here for the past eight years, this is what Tokyo means to me.
IKIMASHO! is my own spelling of “LET’S GO!” in Japanese, and pretty much sums up my approach to life. After all, you don’t get anywhere standing still.
Nice to meet you, and I hope you like the site.
Take a look at my published work here.
