Nick Kemp has created a platform for understanding the real meaning of IKIGAI as it is understood and practiced in Japan.

Nick has not only lived in Japan, but has gained access to masters, craftsmen, and thought leaders in Japan who provide a fresh and genuine understanding of the real meaning of IKIGAI. He has tapped into one of the essential treasures of Japanese culture and made it so accessible to English-speaking audiences.
