It has been a fun first week working for Sakura House.
I wanted to take some time to write about a topic I’m very passionate about — Aomori Prefecture. Aomori Prefecture is the northernmost prefecture on Honshu, Japan’s main island. It is a beautiful place all year round with four distinct seasons. I lived in Aomori for three years before moving to Tokyo, and I often get homesick.
Some of these will vary based on which region of Aomori you are in, so use caution!
Aomoriben – Japanese – English
- “wa” – watashi – I, me
- “na” – anata – you
- “dousa” – doko he ikimasu ka – where are you going?
- “wando” – watashitachi – we
- “donzu” – oshiri – butt
- “neppute” – nemui – sleepy
- “jonzu” – jouzu – skilled, to be good at
- “ndasuke” – hontou da ne? – isn’t that right?
- “megoi” – kawaii – cute
- “menkoi” – chou kawaii – super duper cute
I hope you enjoyed my quick lesson on Aomori Dialects. If you want to know more be sure to visit Aomori, the most awesome prefecture in Japan! Or you can talk to me and I can tell you all about it.
Have a great weekend, Sakura House people. Until next time.
