Hi everybody!

Just sharing some promotional posters of our newest products available at JLM STORE! Many thanks to Chichi & Anne for helping me out with these.

Sukajan designs conceptualized by the JLM team. Magical touches & creative execution by Little Miss Paintbrush.

To those who will be preordering any sakuran / geisha-themed jacket will receive a premium deco eyelash set designed by @moekoosawa (until supplies last).

Shipments will start this July 10, 2017.

We only have limited quantities per design / size. Watch out for our blog entry about the entire design process of creating the #JapanLoverMe box and these fantastic souvenir jackets.

We really worked hard on these! 😆❤️✌🏻️

4 Years of Sharing JapanLove 🇯🇵 + Our Original JLM Souvenir Jacket 🌊

Hi everyone!

Last April 12, Japan Lover Me turned 4 years since our first launch. A lot has changed since then! : )

So happy that this baby of ours has been consistently progressing over the years! 🙂

It’s been a very challenging adventure but we’re all in for the fun ride!

Just yesterday, the actual boxes for JLM STORE & souvenir jacket samples from our partner maker have arrived!

I’m so proud of this design project because it used to be just an idea before even when we were struggling to setup JLM STORE.

Many thanks to Chichi / Little Miss Paintbrush for always putting your 1000% effort into everything that we all do. :”)

Souvenir jacket preorder will start soon at Japan Lover Me Store! Make sure to subscribe to our mailing list 😉

Little Miss Paintbrush’s Kawaii Website (

おはよう (Good Morning) from Japan!

I just want to announce that my dear friend / twinnie ChiChi has finally launched her Little Miss Paintbrush Website!!!

Read ChiChi’s inspirational story here.

I’ve witnessed how ChiChi worked hard on this dream website of hers and I couldn’t be more prouder to share this with you! If you are an artist or you want to pursue art someday, let her story inspire you.

It still amazes me how she is the breadwinner of her entire family. In the Philippines, it’s very challenging to be an artist while you provide for the family. For me, she is really one of the most inspiring people out there. Not only that she is humble to the core, but because she is truly a genuine person. She makes art to spread positivity and to make others smile! (To be “chichified” is both an honor and responsibility.. just kidding lol. Corny joke attempt hahahahaha)

When she was younger, she got a scholarship program under Assumption Development Foundation (which we would like to get as a beneficiary for the Kawaii Market 2016 we are planning *crosses fingers*) and they really helped her finance her education. Imagine how you can change many people’s lives just by helping out a child who is overflowing with so much potential and has the heart to give back?

I remember the time when ChiChi’s pen tablet got broken and we had some deadlines for Japan Lover Me (we work together in the same company) and even with just a mouse, she was able to finish the illustration requested. Now, that’s pure talent! I’m seriously blown away by her professionalism + skills. And I’m super proud to call her as my friend.

I know that someday, ChiChi’s art will grace more books, magazines, publications, exhibits, lifestyle & fashion goods, and so much. I really believe that this big dream of hers will come true someday. : )

I will be here as a friend to give my all-out support as she continues to unlock more dreams while she proves to the world that you can be who you want to be, as long as you put your soul and heart into it.

Much love,


(I’m really a cheesy friend hahahaha)
