VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese: Telephone talk

What would you say when you wrap up a telephone call or in-person conversation with your friend?

Be sure to say "Okiwo Tsukete,” which means "take care of yourself" before you hang up your phone or leave your friends. This is a nice, heart-warming expression that shows your considerations to your friend's health and safety.

Today's Japanese phrase is:

OKIWO TSUKETE = Take care of yourself

Use this expression anytime you’re ending a converstation.

 Stay safe and OKIWO TSUKETE!
