Japanese Online Newsletter Vol. 14

いってきます
いってらっしゃい

いってきます [Itte-kimasu] といってらっしゃい [Itte-rassyai]
Greetings for when someone is going out


朝出勤(しゅっきん)するとき、お昼ご飯を食べに行くとき、夕方ランニングに行く時、週末(しゅうまつ)デートや旅行(りょこう)に行くとき… みなさんはなんと言ってでかけていますか?

日本語には「いってきます」という表現(ひょうげん)があります。これは自分がどこかに出かけるときに、その場にのこる人に対(たい)して伝えるあいさつです。その時はなれる場所は、家でも会社(かいしゃ)でもどこでもいいのですが、近い将来(しょうらい)その場にもどってくることを前提(ぜんてい)に使われます。

反対(はんたい)に、だれかをみおくるときには、「いってらっしゃい」を使います。

何も言わずに出かけるよりも、あいさつをすると気持ちがいいですよね。お母さんと子ども[ゆうと] の会話(かいわ)を見てみましょう。

ゆうと :お母さん!けんじくんと3時にうちの近くの公園(こうえん)でまちあわせてるんだ。
お母さん :あら、いいわね。3時っていったら… あと10分ね。
ゆうと :うん、だからそろそろ行こうかな。5時までにはかえってくるよ。
お母さん :わかった、気をつけてね。いってらっしゃい。
ゆうと :うん、いってきまーす!


What do you say when you go to work in the morning, go out for lunch, go running in the evening, head out on a date or travel for the weekend?

“Itte-kimasu” is an expression that means “I’ll be back” and you can use it when you head out somewhere. This phrase can be used anytime you leave a place, whether it’s your house or workplace. It also includes the premise that you will come back to the place in the near future.

“Itte-rassyai”, on the other hand, is the expression meaning “Have a nice day” or “I’ll see you later”, which you can use when you see someone off.

Doesn’t it feel better to say something like “Itte-kimasu” and “Itte-rassyai” than saying nothing when you or someone leaves? Let’s look at a conversation between a mother and a kid (Yuto).

Yuto : Mom! I’m meeting up with Kenji at 3pm at the park near our house.
Mother : That’s great. Let’s see… it’s only ten to three.
Yuto : Yeah, so I’m heading out. I will be back by 5pm as the latest.
Mother : Okay, be careful! See you later.

Jenny wanted to purchase 2 dozen pencils and a pen. Those items cost $8.45 and she did not have enough money. So she decided to purchase 8 fewer pencils and paid $6.05.

お花見 [Ohanami]
“Cherry blossom viewing”


春(はる)になって気温(きおん)があたたかくなると、たくさんの花(はな)がさいて、見ているだけでしあわせな気持ち(きもち)になります。桜(さくら)も春にさきほこり、きれいな姿(すがた)を見せてくれます。日本ではそんな桜をめでる習慣(しゅうかん)があり、桜をながめながら、食事(しょくじ)をしたり、ゲームをしたり、会話(かいわ)を楽しんだりします。これを「お花見(はなみ)」とよびます。この言葉の中に「桜」という言葉はふくまれていませんが、一般的(いっぱんてき)にこの「お花」は桜のことです。

また、桜には「はかない美(うつく)しさ」という考え方が定着(ていちゃく)しています。桜はさきはじめてから約(やく)2週間(しゅうかん)で散(ち)ってしまいます。だからこそ、このみじかい期間(きかん)に立派(りっぱ)に美しくさきほこる桜の姿に、人々(ひとびと)はひきつけられるのです。


As Spring arrives, the temperature goes up and a lot of flowers start blooming, which makes me happy. The cherry blossom is a type of flower that blooms in the Spring. In Japan, people admire cherry blossoms while they eat, play games, and enjoy conversations with their family and friends. This custom is called “ohanami”, which means cherry blossom viewing. This phrase doesn’t contain the word “sakura” (cherry blossom), although “ohana” in this case refers to cherry blossoms.

Cherry blossoms are often associated with the idea of “momentary beauty” because its peak bloom doesn’t last too long, and only occurs for a few weeks. Despite their short life span, cherry blossoms bloom beautifully and continue to be appealing to people.

ファーストフード [Fa-a-suto fu-u-do]
“Fast food”


みなさんの国のファーストフードといえば、何が思いつきますか?
日本では、ハンバーガーやピザも人気(にんき)ですが、ほかにも日本ならではのファーストフードがあります。
たとえば、日本といえば…!のおすしは江戸時代(えどじだい)からのファーストフードです。今でも回転寿司(かいてんずし)に行くと、席(せき)についてすぐにおすしを食べられます。また、そばも国民的(こくみんてき)ファーストフードとしてしたしまれています。駅の構内(こうない)やプラットホームにも「たちぐいそば屋(や)」があり、いそがしい会社員(かいしゃいん)のおなかを一瞬(いっしゅん)でみたしてくれます。

「ファーストフード」という言葉は英語の ”fast food” からきていますが、日本語で発音するときには「ふぁ・ あ ・すと」と長い母音(ぼいん)がはいり、“first” にちかい発音(はつおん)になります。「早い・安い・うまい」は、私たちの「一番(いちばん)」のみかたですね。


What kind of “fast food” do you think is unique to your country?
Although hamburger and pizza are popular, we do have some other fast food originates from Japan. For example, sushi, which is a staple of Japanese cuisine, began as a type of fast food in the Edo period. Even now if you go to a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, you can eat sushi as soon as you take a seat.
Soba noodles are also enjoyed by many people. There are noodle stands that sell soba at train stations, which immediately feed busy people.

The phrase “fast food” comes to the Japanese language from English, however, it’s pronounced “fa-a-suto-fu-u-do” in Japanese. Notice the long “a” between “fa” and “suto.” This sounds similar to how Japanese people say “first.” When you do not have time to cook, “fast, cheap, and good” comes in “first” to save the day.

ガチャポン [Gachapon]
“Capsule toys”

JOLニュースレターVol. 3 では日本の自動販売機(じどうはんばいき)について紹介(しょうかい)しました。今回は「ガチャポン」または「ガチャガチャ」という、自動販売機にすこしにた機械(きかい)について紹介します。

ガチャポンはお金(やく100〜300円)をいれて、レバーをまわすとカプセルに入(はい)ったおもちゃがでてきます。自動販売機は自分(じぶん)のすきなものをえらんで買うことができますが、ガチャポンの場合(ばあい)中身(なかみ)はえらべません。

アニメのフィギュアやキーホルダー、かわいい動物(どうぶつ)のマスコット、ミニカー、小さな文房具(ぶんぼうぐ)、ポーチなどいろいろな種類(しゅるい)があります。

何がでてくるのか分からないワクワクと、同じシリーズの中の仲間(なかま)を集めるたのしさがガチャポンの魅力(みりょく)と言えるでしょう。


In Vol. 3 of the JOL Newsletter, we talked about vending machines in Japan. Today we would like to talk about what is called “Gachapon” or “Gach-Gacha”- which are capsule toy machines that look similar to vending machines.

The way a Gachapon works is that you put money (it usually costs about 100-300 yen) into it and twist the handle, a capsule toy will then come out. You can’t choose what you get from Gachapon, while you can buy an item of your choice from vending machines.

There are many kinds of Gachapon such as anime figures, keychains, cute and funny animal toys, car toys, small bags, and small stationery items.

It’s exciting to get something expected or unexpected, and it’s fun to collect a series of toys and items you like. Which is probably why Gachapon continue to attract people to them.
