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.

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?

Rinkya Japanese Flashcards: “yamu wo ezu”

Are you collecting Rinkya Japanese flashcards?? Great! Today we are going to learn “yamu wo ezu,” a very useful expression. It means “to do something reluctantly,” or that something is “unavoidable.” It is like you have to do something, you either like it or not, thus it is something that cannot be avoided.

This is a great expression to state that you have to do something whatever the costs, either you like it or not. For example: you have to work to earn money, you like it or not. Or you have to go to school when you are a kid, you like it or not. Or, there is some circumstance that forces you to do something you like it or not.
