About This Project

Japanifornia is a project that exists between the complementary cultures of Japan and California. We live in the space between the two locations—including multiple stops around the Pacific Rim and Hawaii—and we love everything about our dual lifestyles.

Wayō simply, means East Meets West. Wa is much more Japan specific, and has connotations of harmony, peace, and Japanese spirit. For example, 平和 is heiwa, which does mean peace. 温和 is onwa. Onwa means gentle, mild or moderate. It’s a great symbol for a country well known for pacifism. 洋 or yō is a little more subtle. By itself it means “western style,” but also is used for ocean. 洋食 yōshoku is western cooking, where 和食 washoku is Japanese cooking. In the end, we believe, that for us, it signifies that the combination of the two rightly represents what Japanifornia is all about—the combination of both the best of Japan, with the best of the West (e.g California).
