Japanese Words I’m Learning – Part 10

Konnichiwa, minnasan!

I hope everyone’s having a good, happy start to the week! Today’s theme is all about the body.

Karada – body

Atama – head

Kami – hair

Kao – face

Me – eye (it’s pronounced more like meh, instead of me)

Mimi – ear

Hana – nose

Onaka – stomach

The two words I most commonly use in the list here are atama and onaka, where I basically say every day, “Atama ga itai,” which means my head hurts, and “Onaka suita,” which means, I’m hungry. Or, the direct translation would be stomach empty.
