VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Make it a fine day, tomorrow

In mainland Japan, we are still in the rainy season. Continuing rain, hot and humid weather—it's a really annoying season, isn't it?

Are you planning to go out tomorrow?

Well, why not make a "teruterubozu" or sunshine monk, and hang it on the window?

Today's Japanese phrase is:

"Ashita tenkini naare!" = Make it a fine day, tomorrow! ("ashita" = tomorrow, "tenki" = (good) weather, "naare" = make it/I hope)

Tell your teruterubozu this Japanese phrase and he will bring you the sunshine for sure!

Japan’s rainy season runs through September and there are many local traditions that go along with this season including teruterubozu sunshine monks.

Stay safe and stay dry!
