Our Story (Contact Us)

Ikigai (生き甲斐) is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.” It is similar to the French phrase Raison d’être. According to Japanese culture, everyone has an ikigai, that requires deep searching one’s self. Along our path searching for the purpose of our existence, we found one thing that at the beginning and the end. That is LOVE. Love for Japan is our motivation to get up every morning to share and communicate with others who do the same. Come join us for our love for Japan! #ylovejp #whylovejapan
