This week for my RocketNews24 W.T.F. Japan article, I wrote about the top five most hilarious Japanese euphemisms.
One thing that I’d like to start doing more of in the W.T.F. series is really bringing Japanese things to an English-speaking audience that they really have no other way of finding out about.
While articles like “top five strange Christmas things” and “top five ways to immigrate to Japan” are perfectly fine and interesting and helpful and all that stuff, they’re most compilations (hilariously and expertly-written compilations, of course!) of things that you can find if you looked them up in English.
I’ll still do article like those, but I’d like to do as many as possible on topics that are much more difficult to look up in English, such as this week’s topic on euphemisms.
What kind of things do Japanese people like to talk their way around? Are they similar to ones we have in English or completely different? There’s only one way to find out.
