Synopsis

Discover 101 useful Japanese idioms.

Ever wondered what it means when your mouth is 'heavy,' how to 'use people with your chin,' or what 'grinding sesame' signifies in Japanese? Uncover the meanings behind these fascinating idioms and many more.

While this book is immensely beneficial even for beginners, hiragana and a basic understanding of Japanese sentence structure are required.

Once one zooms beyond the basics of a language, idiomatic expressions, proverbs, and slang can provide the spice to keep motivation up and progress going forward. This book will introduce 101 of the most common Japanese idioms.

We are including, at no extra charge, sound files for all the examples found in this book. Use these files to practice your pronunciation and listening.

In addition, we are also including a free Anki deck with sound of all the idioms found in the collection. Anki is a free flashcard software that will help you quickly remember these idioms.

In this edition, we've eliminated all Rōmaji (Roman letters) and limited Furigana (the small Hiragana over Kanji) to its first occurrence in each lesson. This approach may challenge beginners, but it's our way of ensuring your success in Japanese - consider it 'tough love. Our goal is your success in mastering Japanese. Early reliance on Rōmaji and Furigana can impede long-term progress.

We advocate for learning vocabulary in its proper context as the most effective method. Every idiom is followed by an example sentence and a paragraph or two explaining the context and usage.

To further support your learning journey, we're offering an exceptional collection of bonus materials:
