Japanese to English

I will post as many Japanese words here as I can for the use of all writers and anyone else who wants to use them. Although I am taking a Japanese language class, I still want you to send in those Japanese words! Want to know the meaning of a word, or translate a phrase? Send me an email with the phrase or word, and I will do my best to translate it for you! Or go to the Links page and check out the posted translator for a single word translation!
