Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards? Good! Today we are going to learn all about the onomatopoeia “jito jito.” We use it to describe a place that is really hot and humid, and this makes us all sweaty. It is also a very unpleasant place to be. Imagine a room in August, in Tokyo, with a big window, with no curtains and no air conditioning! That would be really “jito jito.” You will find this onomatopoeia in manga, literature but also daily life.

But the kid insists so much that the parents end up buying the thing for the kid. Obviously, the parents don’t want to buy that thing, so they do it reluctantly. You can find this onomatopoeia in daily conversations, literature and also manga.
