Are you interested in Japan?
I’m Japanese, so I share Japanese language. 🗾
I will put English and Japanese side by side so that you can know Japanese even a little.
Similarly, I often watch English channels on YouTube.
It’s especially 🔗 NASA TV. 🌏🚀😆
Japanese Name 日本語の名前
My name is Keiichi Shiga . This kanji is 志賀 慶一 .
Here you should note that the names of Japanese and English are reversed.
That is: 志賀＝Shiga 慶一＝Keiichi
Can be in kanji units: 志＝shi 賀＝ga 慶＝kei 一＝ichi
Usually, one kanji character has its reading.
However, the brand name may not be reversed.
For example: Hatsune Miku (初音ミク). 初音＝Hatsune ミク＝Miku . Of course this can also be character-wise: 初＝hatsu 音＝ne ミ＝mi ク＝ku
The emoji were originally from Japanese mobile phones and were formulated in Unicode.
Kanji and reading: 絵＝E(picture) 文字=moji(text)
I like balloons. It’s in the emoji: 🎈😄
Japanese Keyboard 日本語キーボード
This is the HP Stream 11 keyboard I’m using.
You know HP Stream 11, but this keyboard may be unusual.
There are the following characters for QWER: ぬ ふ あ う
This is called the JIS(Japanese Industrial Standards) layout
and has existed in Japanese personal computers for a long time. 💻
I also share the Gboard used on Android. 📱
Not here: ぬ ふ あ う. How do you enter Japanese?
The answer was written earlier: hatsunemiku→初音ミク.
In Japan, flick input(フリック入力) that matches the numeric keypad of mobile phones is also widespread.
I will put out what I like again. It’s a balloon＝風船 .
But there is a caveat to this: 風船＝🎈
Balloon are also for people to ride: It is a 気球 in Japanese.
気球 comes from Chinese: 气球 or 氣球. In Chinese, it would be the same definition as English.
It’s interesting to divide the 風船 by kanji:
- 風(fū or kaze)＝breeze 🍃 (or wind, But the wind will not be strong)
- 船(sen or fune)＝ship 🚢
Yeah. Japanese reading: 風船＝fūsen (“-“:Increases pronunciation)
Let’s learn another Japanese. Both balloon and balloons are 風船.
There is no plural form in Japanese.
