VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Listen for the sounds of autumn

Crickets herald the arrival of the nice season of autumn with a bell-like beautiful voice. They are actually great musicians. The sound of crickets chirping in the evening often reminds us Japanese that Autumn has come.

Today's Japanese phrase is:

"Mushinokoega shimasu." = We can hear the nice autumn sounds of crickets' singing.

("mushi" = bug, "koe" = voice, sound, singing, ".. ga shimasu" = there is/we can hear)

Use the seasonal Japanese phrase on your evening walk, surrounded by the lively cricket sounds. It sure will remind you that a nice, cool season has come at last.

Stay safe and enjoy a cool, nice season of autumn!
