Rinkya Japanese Flashcards: “shimittare”

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

Are you collecting all our Japanese Flashcards? We hope so! Today we are going to learn the word “shimittare.” It is a synonym for “kechi,” that is to be stingy (not to want to spend money, even you have plenty). But it also means to be miserable. So, it talks about a person or someone who is stingy not only with material things but also with feelings.

This is quite a hard word to say, so please use it with discretion. It is obviously very negative too, so it could also become an insult. Please use it wisely.

Do you know anyone that is “shimittare”? Think about manga characters. Does someone come into your mind?
