Japan tsunami: the recovery, one year on | World news | guardian.co.uk
I live in Japan, but barely speak Japanese. I can’t help you with verb conjugation or passing the JLPT. But I have managed to eat! Restaurants in Japan are a culinary and cultural adventure.
Picture perfect for this picnic. Wish I could have sat down and joined in. Beautiful Sakura. So many people enjoying themselves, whether they were sitting down and drinking or just walking on by.
Life is full of ki-do-ai-raku (kee-doh-ah-ee-rah-koo; delight-anger-sorrow-fun), and some phrases slip out of our mouths repeatedly in response to different daily situations. Master these common Japanese expressions and use them casually to sound like a native. Yatta (yaht-tah; I did it!) Say yatta when you accomplish something big, receive a great opportunity, or feel victorious.
