Japanese Words That Don’t Exist In English

Some Japanese words can’t be translated exactly to English words or don’t exist in English. However Japanese people use these phrases for regular basis.

ITADAKIMASU – “Itadakimasu” means “I will have this.” It is used before eating any food to express appreciation and respect for life, nature, the person who prepared the food, the person who served the food, and everything else that is related to eating.

OTSUKARESAMA – “Otsukaresama” means “you’re tired.” It is used to let someone know that you recognize his/her hard work and that you are thankful for it.

SHOGANAI – The literal meaning of “Shoganai” is “it cannot be helped.” However, it is not discouraging or despairing. It means to accept that something was out of your control. It encourages people to realize that it wasn’t their fault and to move on with no regret.

It’s also called “the Girl’s Festival” because it’s to wish for girl’s growth and happiness. It’s also known as “Momo no Sekku (the Peach Festival)”
People display a set of calls in beautiful ancient court costume of the Heian era on a tier of 5 or 7 shelves.
A set includes dairy-bina (the Emperor and Empress), three kanjo (court ladies), five court musicians, two ministers, and three servants.

Japanese Valentine’s day

On Valentine’s Day, it’s common for Japanese women to give chocolates to men. Women are encouraged to express love to men by giving chocolates and other gifts. Chocolates are often given to male co-workers, bosses, friends, family members, and so on.

Men give various gifts to women on March 14 called White Day. It’s said that this tradition started as a marketing tool for chocolate companies in Japan.

Chocolates given to men whom women don’t feel special love are called “giri (obligation)-choco (chocolate)” in Japan. Chocolate given to co-workers and bosses are usually considered giri-choco.

Women tend to give special gifts with chocolates to those men whom they love. Chocolates given to a special man from a woman is called “honmei (prospective winner)-choco.

In recent years, many Japanese young women exchange chocolate gifts with their female friends. These chocolates are called “tomo (friend) choco.”

Grocery stores, department stores, and convenience stores around the country sell many different kinds of domestic and imported chocolates. It’s said that more than half of the chocolates sold in a year is sold around Valentine’s Day in Japan.
