Don’t be alarmed. Songkran Festival in Thailand means it’s OK to dress like this.

I’m mainly interested in writing about Japan, as well as the quirkier side of underground culture in SE Asia. I love to travel. I love art. I love electronica and punk rock. If you have something cool you would like me to cover – and you think it would fit well on IKIMASHO! – drop me (Justin) a mail at jeglicopy@gmail.com (I will consider sponsored posts on a case-by-case basis as long as they are relevant to the content of my site. Please email for details.)
