Description

Japanese Proverbs is filled with universal truths (‘Fall down seven times, get up eight’) as well as uniquely Japanese sayings and folk wisdom (‘Even a one-inch insect has a half-inch soul’) which may seem cryptic and difficult to understand until you know the entire proverb that it refers to. This book will delight students of Japanese language and culture and will provide you with the key to speaking and understanding Japanese more fluently. All the proverbs are presented in Japanese script and Romanised form, along with direct English translations.
