Japanese Words and Concepts for Everyone
Feb 24, 2021 Episode 107

On this episode of Voices in Japan, Ben and Burke review Japanese words and concepts that almost anyone can relate to as mentioned in an article by Time Out Tokyo. Some of the words you might hear daily in Japan like "shouganai" (a phrase meaning "it can't be helped") and "otsukare" (a greeting or farewell used in various situations). Others might not be heard as often but are certainly relatable concepts whether you live in Japan or not, so listen now and see if you ever find yourself in similar situations where the guys encounter these words in their own lives.
