母の日 Mother's Day in Japanese

母の日 Mother's Day in Japanese

Happy Mother's Day! 

Did you know Japan also has a Mother's Day? It is called 母の日 (haha no hi), which, er, literally means, "Mother's Day."

It is held on the second Sunday in May.

Here are a few vocabulary words associated with Mom.

お母さん okaasan--mother 

ママ mama--mama

赤ちゃん akachan--baby


息子 musuko--son


カーネーション ka-ne-shon--carnation

While Japanese don't really say "Happy Mother's Day!" you can express your appreciation in other ways:

いつもありがとう itsumo arigatou--thank you for everything

感謝している kansha shiteiru--(I) am thankful.

Helpful and great value for money

The mp3s and ebooks of the dialogues are very helpful. The speakers voices are clear and distinct allowing you easily recognise the Japanese words you're familiar with.

Cat Lover T-Shirt Overseas

Though we know how most cats hate travelling, this Maneki Neko made it in a fly. I guess the quality cotton matrix made her oblivious of any potentially harmful reality. Anyway, this T-Shirt had my wife break into a Cheshire smile. Which is very good: Happy wife, happy life, you might remember. Kuma 熊

Hello Kitty and Happiness

What is not to love about anything Hello Kitty! When I see her, she makes me smile and feel happy. I'll smile and be happy every time I use my fan during this hot Arizona summer! Such a simple thing :-) Thank you for making them available!!
