Hey, I’m Justin. I live in Tokyo and IKIMASHO! is the digital home to all my writing and photography from Japan and across SE Asia.
It was nominated for Wanderlust’s Travel Blog of the Year – and the Japanese National Tourist Organisation recently added it to its list of ‘Great Japan Sources’ alongside Lonely Planet.
I am also the Tokyo correspondent for DAZED.
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, hope you like the site.
Take a look at my published work here.
