A skateboarding trick in which the skater bends his/her legs and body to one side and grabs the bottom of the board.

So called because from the front or back, the skater's pose is a similar shape to the country or Japan.

An awesome country in the far east. It has fantastic horror movies, anime, songs, singers, and food. The capital is Tokyo and currently (as of 2010) the Emperor and Empress are Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko. The Japanese are very healthy people, since their foods are so healthy such as sushi, rice, tea, and many people walk more than drive, which gives them more exercise. Japan has been around for a long time, and its Kanji is derived from Chinese characters. 花is a japanese character meaning "flower" but it is also a chinese character. In Japan, their language has three main writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Hiragana and Kanji are used for japanese words, and Katakana for foreign, or emphasized words. There is more than one kanji for many sounds, and there is more than one reading for most (or all) Kanji.
Person 1: Hey, have you ever been to Japan?
Person 2: No, what's that?
Person 1: Dude! It's one of the best countries ever! Awesome culture, food, songs, all that stuff! You need to go there.

"Just Another Pretty-Ass Nigga"

Acronym or phrase used to represent those kids living in areas around Japan- particularly the military bases. Usually the baller or gangster type; skaters and punkers may be included- just make sure that you're "pretty" and "fresh". No, you don't have to be Black or even a Japanese person to represent or be represented...as long as you're down and you're one of 'them cool kids', you're "just another pretty-ass nigga".

*note: only those living or have lived in Japan can use/represent themselves as J.A.P.A.N
Damn, look at Keith.. he's J.A.P.A.N.

after checking yourself out in the mirror, you say to yourself with full big-headed arrogance: "I'm J.A.P.A.N."
