Japas is one of the characters in the game Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. He is a Zora, and he plays bass in the band The Indigo-Go's. He's a laid back, relaxed guy whose long "hair" (which is really fins) is styled like that of a typical grunge rocker. He frequently held jam sessions with Mikau, guitarist of The Indigo-Go's, before he died, and once Link gets the Zora Mask, he (Link) can embody the spirit of Mikau and play with Japas.
Japas is amazing and you know it.
