Posting in Japanese? Leave a translation. It's good practice and helps others.


Mina-san, we hope that everyone had/is having a great Saturday! :grin: Tokyo was deserted, :shock: as there seems to be many people on vacation! Hope everyone has a great weekend. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu. :grin:


Hi Kurisuti,
Yes, that’s right :mrgreen:

In many anime they mention Goruden Uiku, I finally know what it is now! It is sort of like spring break in America, but for everyone!

Yes, onsen are split into male and female baths. Sometimes (increasingly rarely) you’ll find an onsen with 混浴 (konyoku), which is a mixed bath for men and women. At these, the women often wear special bath-towels wrapped around them for modesty. ;)

For anyone who dosen’t know, Tokyo Disneyland is ” 東京ディズニーランド ” in Japanese. By the way, onsen are divided into separate springs for men and women, right?

kodomo no hi! I have to tell Mum about that. My brother and I used to ask her why there was a Mothers’ Day and a Fathers’ Day, but no Kids’ Day, and she used to say “Every day is Kids’ Day”. I think it’s a stock mother phrase.

Just got back from Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. Because of Golden Week, I had to book everything way in advance. My hotel was packed with no vacancies. Lots of Golden Week “specials.” But for my Japanese friends, Golden Week is no big deal. They’re not going anywhere.

The weather is really starting to get warmer now:)

I think JapanesePod101 is doing a great job so far in presenting their lessons to the learners. I feel the way that they structured their lessons and their style of teaching have attracted me to keep listening to them because they are concise, clear and makes the listener feel relaxed when learning. I think to a beginner learning Japanese, this podcast would be very useful because I feel it really makes sure the listeners get the meanings, correct pronunciations, and how they would use the phrases/words in their daily lives. I look forward to see JapanesePod101 continuing to provide fun lessons for its listeners. Ganbatte! ;)
