Word of the month:


In Japan, as soon as Christmas Day is over, Christmas trees are quickly replaced with 門松 kadomatsu ( Picture on the right). Kadomatsu is a seasonal ornament to welcome gods to our homes and businesses and can be seen only around this season of the year. Usually a set of kadomatsu are placed outside on both sides of the entrance gate so that the gods can find our places. The size of Kadomatsu varies. Large ones are over 6 feet tall. Traditionally, the arrangement has three sets of bamboo, pine needles, plum branches, and nandina berries. Each material used is considered to bring luck and prosperity. read more

What does sasuga mean? 

If you were to look up the word sasuga in the dictionary, it would say "That's great!" Sasuga in Japanese has more than that in its nuance. It is close to the English phrase, "It's so you!" or "No one does it like you!" When a Japanese person praises another person, "Sasuga!" is often said, and when it is written, often followed by an exclamation point (!)
