VIDEO| Speakin' Japanese: Let's enjoy a nice autumn day!

With a cool breeze and nice temperature, autumn is one of the best seasons to enjoying outings and taking a walk around Japan’s vast nature escapes.

Jogashima Island off the top of Miura Peninsula is a nice autumn-walking destination where you can check out the area’s impressive coastal beauty, unique rock structure and magnificent two lighthouses known as "lighthouses in love."

Today's Japanese phrase:

“Aki-biyori desu!” 秋日和です! = It's a beautiful autumn day!

 “Aki" 秋= autumn, "-biyori” 日和 = a nice/beautiful day for/of, ".. desu" .. です = It is ..

You can also say:

"Undokai-biyori desu." 運動会日和です = It's a nice day for a sports meet.

"Pikunikku-biyori desu." ピクニック日和です = It's a nice day for a picnic.

"Koraku-biyori desu." 行楽日和です = It's a nice day for a travel.

 Don't miss the nice autumn weather of fall and enjoy scenic attractions in Japan!
