Rinkya Japanese Flashcards: “konrinzai”

flashcard, japanese, japan, japanese flashcard, rinkya, rinkya japan, learn japanese

Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards?? Good! We’ve got quite a lot right now. Today we are going to learn about the expression “konrinzai.” It means “till doomsday,” “not… at all,” and “till the end of the world.” You can also use it as a synonym of “zettaini” and “dokomademo.” In its negative sense, it would mean like… well, never. But if used in a positive way it is beautiful. It is a very Japanese word, so using this one it makes you sound really good. You are likely to find this written into novels, and less likely to find it in manga. So, if you read novels, even if they seem too easy, you might be able to find it in there.

Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards?? Today we have a cool proverb for you! We are going to discover what “kuchi wa wazawai no kado” means. It literally states that “the mouth is the door of calamity.” Which means that you have to be careful of what you say. You can regret something if you say something without being careful (depending on the situation, of course). And sometimes, you have to be more gentle than usual. Even if you are not aware of, sometimes you can be not too careful about what you say to someone, and hurt this person or perhaps give some information to someone who might not be adequate.

So, be carful of what you let go out from your door! Meaning: be careful with your words.

flashcard, japanese, japan, japanese flashcard, rinkya, rinkya japan, learn japanese

Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards? Cool! Today we are going to learn what “raku areba, ku ari” means. This is a Japanese proverb that says that “if there is pleasure, there is pain.” Meaning that, if there is pleasure, afterwards pain can follow. Imagine a period of pure happiness, after that it can come pain. Or something even more simple: you eat a lot of sweets and cakes. It is a pleasure to eat all of those sweets, but you eat too much, and after a while your stomach starts aching. Then, you can say “raku areba, ku ari.”

Are you using Rinkya Japanese Flashcards to learn Japanese?? Good! Today we have a very easy one: “ishin denshin.” It is like telepathy, literally, “heart to heart communication.” You can use this expression when someone seems to have read your mind, or when you totally agree with someone because he/she understands you completely, almost in a way that seems that your thoughts are their thoughts. It feels like real telepathy. You can use it in daily conversations, but you can also find this expression in books.

Rinkya Japanese Flashcards: “meso meso”

flashcard, japanese, japan, japanese flashcard, rinkya, rinkya japan, learn japanese

Do you collect all Rinkya Japanese Flashcards?? Good! Today we are going to learn what “meso meso” is. “Meso meso” is an onomatopoeia that means “sobbing” or “weeping without control.” It can also refer to an effeminate man who is sobbing. You will find this onomatopoeia in manga, but you can also use it in your daily conversations. Though be careful because if you use it wrongly you could be offending someone (specially since “meso meso” can be used to describe a man in a “feminine” manner, but it is not positive at all).

Would you use “meso meso” in your daily life? How many Rinkya Japanese flashcards have you collected so far? Which is your favorite one?
