Just wanted to share a fun moment I had today. I saw a work van in my suburban California neighborhood, completely unadorned except for 家具の医師. I haven’t learned 師 yet, but with the other three kanji I was able to figure out that the van probably belonged to a furniture repair shop.
I’m new here, so apologies in advance if this is irrelevant or miscategorized or boring.
I can imagine how nice you felt reading that. I felt nice imagining myself read that and look around at nobody in particular as if to say " anyone needs a translator? Because I’m the one who can read this van"
Thought this was going to be a share thread, but I saw this the other day and 草ed.
is that a watch or a band you’re wearing? it’s so cute
My husband was playing a YT video that was in Japanese and the channel was called “古民家ひとり暮らし.” I knew ひとり and 暮らし, was able to guess the reading for 古民家 but didn’t know what it directly meant. Based on the kanji used – “old” “peoples” “house” – I almost immediately thought it meant nursing home, which is “old folks’ home” in less polite English. Ha! But thankfully there’s video so I decided it meant “living alone in a (literal) old house.” Lol
(I was close. Later found out 古民家 is an old traditional Japanese house.)
Anyway that channel is awesome, we’ve watched all the episodes since
Cool! What’s the channel?
It’s a very peaceful channel; we watch it when we’re turning down for the day. It can also be bite-sized reading practice if you turn off the subs/translations.
