Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards?? Good! Today we are going to learn what “ken-en no naka” means. It literally means that “a dog and a monkey are friends.” It means that to be too friendly or too close to someone might not be a good idea. Monkeys and dogs don’t go together, the dog will finally bark, and the monkey will do something funny to the dog. So, sooner or later, a fight might arise. “Ken” is dog, and “en” is monkey, so, “ken-en” being friends is not such a good thing to do.
