Your favourite Japanese word/phrase?

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure this kind of thread should belong in here...

This makes me oddly satisfied and extremely relatable on a deep level... as deep as it can get. 

 

I really like "zutto/itsumo" for some reason. Probably the way its said, and just the definition of it (pretty much "always"). I'm a sap.

気持ち, obviously. I say it a lot with my friends during random conversations. It's a thing in my squad to shout random japanese words sometimes while we are talking just for making fun of weebos. So now, they are calling me "kimochi". Another friend of mine is nicknamed "Watashi". Yeah, we are weirdos.

More stuff I forgot about before

 

マジ !?!?!?   or マジ で  !?!??!

本当に ???? 

勘弁してくれよ...

オイ!

ぶっ殺してやるぞ !!!

 

I learned a lot from playing a bunch of Yakuza games in Japanese, so that's why I love "gangsta" phrases/dialect, lol

Unfortunately I can't roll my R's so I can't actually sound super tough IRL..

I really like "subarashii", "bikkuri shita" and "sugee" (rather than sugoi - I think the "ee" really adds a sort of awestruck feeling to it)

 

Also シュール  ("surreal").

<name>やろう!(can mean either "let's do it, <name>" or a rude way to address someone)  <-- kinda stuck in my head and I'm calling my subordinates this from time to time

 

耐えてみせる。(will show that it can endure it)  <-- usually using it when designing some new prototypes

Shinrin-Yoku which means forest bathing. Pretty beautiful, it's therapeutic.

 

The medicine of simply being in the forest. Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.

That, and "yume no naka de" , since the first time that I heard Arashi's Aiba said it, for some reason.

 

And then  "kutabare" and "kuso" -.-" XD
