It has come to our attention that many websites and pages have been reposting and using our graphics and posts without even properly crediting us, especially the people who worked hard for these graphics, i.e. the artist and researchers/contributors.
In response to this, we would like to make it clear that while we appreciate that many people like what we share, it troubles us that it has become a habit of some pages to not give credit where credit is due.
Our Creative Director and main illustrator/artist, Little Miss Paintbrush, has updated her Terms and Conditions about the use of her art. Since most, if not all, artworks from Japan Lover Me are done by her, we share these terms and conditions as to how our graphics should be properly credited. Please read here: http://
1. DO NOT use our graphics for commercial purposes.
2. DO properly credit us by mentioning us and the artist, and LINKING BACK to us and the artist.

4. DO NOT remove our watermark/URL from our posts, EVER. Do not edit, alter, or crop our graphics.
