Q: ish とはどういう意味ですか?
A: It depends on how it's used.

I'll be there at around 6ish.
Above, "around" makes it clear that you may not be there at exactly 6. That is also what "ish" does, it's kind of like "around".

A. What time do you think you will get here?
B: 5:30ish (Around 5:30, maybe a little before or after)

It can also mean sort of, or kind of.
yellowish = sort of yellow in color

Sometimes "ish" is another way to say "shit", when you don't want to say "shit' since it's a mild swear word.

I may be forgetting other ways it can be used.

Q: using "ish" like "Japanesish" この表現は自然ですか?
A: You can add "ish" to just about any word to make it sound less definite. If you called something "Japanesish" that would mean that it's "kind of Japanese" (which you could also say) or that it's not quite Japanese. "Japanese style" is also acceptable, but sounds more definite. It's more descriptive and less questioning authenticity.

"I went to that Asian restaurant the other was Japanesish"
"That ramen was kind of Japanese, but not really"
"We went to a Japanese style hotel, they had tatami mats and futons!"

If you want to promote and describe something Japanese, I'd call it just "Japanese" or "Japanese style." If you're giving an opinion on how Japanese something is, I'd use "Japanesish" or "kind of Japanese"
