Learning new things.


This weekend I took around some friends from out-of-town. The two sisters Hiroko and Naoko hailed from a little town about 10 minutes from Kyoto.  The cool thing was that they were all about improving my Japanese as I helped them improve their English.  Here’s a few new terms I learned from them.

Subarashii – Wonderful.
Midori – Green
Ao – Blue
Kiiro – Yellow
Orenji – Orange
Tsuki – Moon
Muzukashii – Difficult
Kantan – Easy
Mottainai – Sense of regret concerning waste.
Dame – No good.
Iine – Isn’t that good.
