NIKUJAGA is a Japanese dish that combines two ingredients that go together perfectly: meat and potatoes. It’s a simple dish, but it is amazing. We like to think that we are similar: simple, but amazing (and humble, of course). Like the dish, NIKUJAGA is two parts: Phil and Haruka.

Phil (NIKU), is an American singer-songwriter, musician, photographer, and writer. Basically he’s creative. He came to Japan in 2011 to teach, and has stayed ever since.

Haruka (JAGA), is a native-born Japanese girl who sings and plays the flute and piano. She is a freelance translator, YouTube personality, and blogger.

Haruka likes to sit on stairs.
