VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Autumn brings nice weather, good music

In Japan, autumn is considered the best season for enjoying the arts.

As it’s neither too hot, nor too cold in this season, we consider it the best time to visit concert halls and art museums to appreciate the arts. It is also a good season to be inspired to play or listen to music, draw pictures or do calligraphy at home.

During this difficult time, let’s enjoy the arts to our heart’s content while staying at home!

Today’s Japanese phrase is:
"Geijutsu no aki desune?" = It’s the autumn for arts, isn’t it?
("geijutsu" = arts, "no" = of, "aki" = autumn/fall, "..desune?" = It is.., isn't it?

You can replace the "geijutsu" with "shokuyoku" (appetite) or "dokusho" (reading books) in the text.
”Shokuyoku no aki desune?"It's the autumn for enjoying meals.
"Dokusho no aki desune?" = It's the autumn for enjoying reading books.

Use these phrases as part of a seasonal greeting in the conversation with friends.

Stay safe and enjoy the season for the arts!
