You Look Good in Yukata ~Japanese Traditional Clothes~

*Japanese Word of the Day*
/sono yukata kawaii ne. niatteru yo/
That Yukata looks cute. You look good in it.

*かわいい /kawaii/ cute
*ね /ne/ (sentence ending particles)

*似合(にあ)う /niau/ to suit; to mach well
似合ってる /nia-tte iru/ is a present continuous tense. is usually omitted in casual conversations.
*よ /yo/ (sentence ending particles) In the same way as ね/ne/, it also makes the sentence sound friendly. It is used when the speaker wants to inform something, or emphasize his opinion. It is like "you know" in English.

Now you understand what to say when you get asked 似合う?(Do I look good?)
Be careful, におう/niou/ sounds similar but it means "to smell"!! lol

Yukata is one of Japanese traditional clothes in summer. Do you like it? :)

I miss Japanese Summer Festivals. I used to wear Yukata when I went to Summer Festivals in Japan. Lately, Yukatas in bright colors (decorated with laces, accessories and big flowers) are popular among young girls, but I prefer traditional designs like the ones women wearing in the video above.

I'd like to introduce a nice blog which introduces Japanese culture and some useful words.
