Languages can be just for fun, right?
I studied Japanese for 2.5 years in college and I used it for 3 years while living in Japan. I've decided that I can keep it going for no reason at all! Or ya know, just because LEARNING IS GREAT!
Golden Week 2013!
Emperor Showa’s Birthday
a day of mixed feelings - was Greenery Day b/c of those… feels… until 2006. ah, we’ll just enjoy the day off.
Constitution Memorial Day
憲法けんぽう - constitution
記念 きねん - commemoration, memory
Yes, みどり has a kanji - 緑 - but the holiday uses the hiragana.
Yup, this one uses the hiragana, too, こども instead of 子供.
Two of this year’s holidays fell on a weekend, so we get another day to make up for it. Awesome.
振替ふりかえ - a transfer, a change
休日 きゅうじつ - holiday, day off
