VIDEO| Speakin' Japanese: Help me stay safe and healthy!

There are thousands of Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples throughout the nation of Japan, and the Japanese often visit one or more to make a wish in Japanese. 

Why not visit one near you and make a wish in Japanese, too? 

Today's Japanese phrase:

“Sukoyakani irare masuyoni!” 健やかにいられますように! = Help me stay safe and healthy! 

“sukoyakani" 健やかに = safe and healthy, "irare" いられ = stay in, "masuyoni" ますように = May.. be../ I wish ... be..


I hope it will bring you good luck. Stay safe and healthy!
