NYC Japanese #2 – Japan Day NYC! ジャパンデイ AKB48

皆さん、久しぶりです。また、NYC の関してブーログ投稿します。

2015年5月10日はニューヨークのセントラルパークでジャパンデイが行われたんだ。

2007年から毎年一日、春の祭りのようにセントラルパークに朝はジャパンランという競走を開始していてそのあと色んな活動や伝統的な文化際やミュージシャン、アーティストなどが現れます。

そして、無料に日本の食べ物も楽しめる。今年のフードテントエリアが餃子、作り立てお好み焼き、お握り、お茶、わらびもちと焼きそばです。焼きそばはラーメンより知られてない人が多いかもしれないので私も焼きそばをお勧めたいと思います。

そして、最後に一番人気な活動は必ず有名な日本女性アーティストなのです。そう、日本の一番人気な女性アイドルグループ、AKB48の6人メンバーが現われました。登場した時、観客が誰よりも盛り上がりそうだった。六人メンバの名前が下に書いてある。↓

There was Japan Day NYC on May 10th, 2015 and every year around the spring. It involves a Japan Run, which is a 4 mile run around Manhattan and stops back at the Japan Day booths in Central park. There are various activities to do and food tents to try for free. They also have musicians, artists, martial arts, and various other groups and ensembles that play so it’s really a great opportunity for New Yorkers to experience some Japanese culture. Please check out the Youtube video above to watch a summary of the days event activities and also I posted below the 2014 NYC AKB-48 Koisuru Fortune Cookie dance as extra. 😀

NYC Japanese #1 – [Kenka!] ニューヨークのご紹介させ第一店[ケンカ!」

I thought it’s been a while since I’ve introduce some places in NYC for people who want to check out and learn some Japanese while experiencing Japanese culture. I think I’ll post places that I’ve gone too and want to recommend including things like Japanese ramen shops, izayakas, restaurants and tea shops and interesting gift and book stores so I hope everyone is looking forward to it.

お久しぶりニューヨークの文化を紹介させの店だから今こそもっと面白い所を皆さんにお勧めべきだと思います。ニューヨークは日本の文化はあちこちで混じり合うと必ず瞠っています。例えば、最近サウス•ストリート•シーポートで歩きつつ人気な観光スポットでたくさんなレストランとデパートと商店があってあそこが日本の文字が見えたと信じられないんです。

south street seaport superdry

そう、それはSuperdry Store 極度乾燥(しなさい)と書いています。あいゆう所何て驚いてるね!

Above is a picture of the Superdry Store in the South Street Seaport, which the brand has gotten incredibly popular in the US recently. I believe they are a England based company that is inspired from Japanese artwork. I just thought it was amazing to see Japanese now walking in the streets of nyc.

 

The first place is probably not one of the most “family-oriented” place to check out in NYC, but the fact that it is an izakaya would typically mean it’s not family friendly since it’s a bar. But this place is somewhere even Japanese people would probably consider a little “grotesque” and not your typical run of the mill izakayas. However, looking past the raunchous menu of bull penises and turkey testicles, it’s actually a nice place with one of the BEST prices for drinks in NYC. If you are looking to have a good night out and drink sake/sapporo all night this place has one of the best deals for drinks in NYC by far. Typical prices in the city range from $6 to $10 a bottle of beer, at kenka it’s a 32 oz mug for $5 sapporo, you cannot beat that anywhere. If you don’t like beer, they have a huge selection of sake and also chuhai. The food is good, I haven’t tried out the “specialties” yet but the typical dishes are like udon, ramen, tonkatsu, they have good okonomiyaki, takoyaki, curry, and other dishes.

次に紹介したいのは面白いな居酒屋です。この居酒屋は通常とはまったく逆、日本の禁止な文化と料理も含めて説明というよりメニューで見らればよく理解出来ると思います。

[ENGLISH SUBTITLES] Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Jonetsu Tairiku Complete

Everyone I have finished subbing the long awaited Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Jonetsu Tairiku video!

Yatta! It took forever because I took a break after finishing up 80% of it and then having to study for my exams and such.  I will go over and revise the timing and better fix up the translation when I get more time but for now everyone enjoy.

2014 Wrap Up 2014年のお仕舞い

皆さん、ただまい戻りました!色々な活躍とか仕事と日常生活とが起こったので更新する事が出来なくてすいませんでした。。

今年の冬私はやっとなまにJLPT(日本語の能力試験レベル2)を受けて取りました!

勉強してたが読書の法はまったく無理になてしまいました。なぜかというと試験に対してまったくその読むの法の準備してなかったからあまり残る時間がないみたいでたくさんの分が推測をしてはいけないので必ず失敗と思います。

でも、きっと大丈夫です。来年の試験を自分に本気で準備させるつもりです。それとも、もう一度動画の通訳を再び振り返します。

まだ、きゃーりぱーみゅぱーみゅの動画はすべて通訳されてないけど必ずもう次と次のポストが終われます。

それとも、皆は来年、何が欲しい物、お願いとかあるのでしょう?

僕は来年、日本のショットストリーが辞書に確認せずに何冊が読みたいんです。

それとも、日本の映画を止まずに見らて欲しいんです。

ところで、今ニューヨークのビデオ店で5枚の日本動画を借りてきました。パソコンにリップされ、字幕も入ってゆっくり見られますね。

今回、多至タイトル、題名に招待してあげます。

また来年にも頑張りましょう!

I hope everyone’s had a great year, I will wrap this up quickly but I just wanted to thank everyone who has come and viewed my blog. I didn’t expect anyone to even be reading this or watching my translated youtube videos but with over 1 million combined views, I think it is a cause for celebration. I will continue to improve on my Japanese and will definitely continue to translate and upload more videos. I’ve gotten tons of books, reading material, and non English videos from the Japanese video store here that I’d like to introduce to everyone studying Japanese or just interested in Japanese culture so I will hopefully get time to go through it all.

Finally, I’d like to leave you all with a famous Japanese song from Nagabushi Tsuyoshi長渕 剛 called Kanpai(1988) to finish this year off and hope to see you all again in 2015!

 

Learning Kanji the Easy Way 漢字の簡単な覚える方法

[日本語]

皆さん、中々お久しぶりです! 長い間ブログに投稿させなくてすみません。

もちろん、日本語の勉強はまだ忘れてないんです。でも、日本語が勉強している人達のためにとても素晴らしくて単語も漢字も覚えやすいアップが見つけました。皆にオススメしてあげます。私は漢字が苦手なのでこの方法がだれでも洛になる、とくに難しいと長い自覚がいるの漢字でした。

そのアップは何!? Kanji-Senpaiと呼ばれました!

それと「A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters」も使えばきっと前より漢字はもっと楽しくなています。

下はスクリーンショットのでぜひやて見て下さい。

最後は、これからまた新しいニューヨークの日本文化ポストが投稿するつもりので皆さん楽しみにしてくれます!

[English]

Hi everyone, it’s been a while!

Sorry for the long break. Of course I haven’t forgotten to study Japanese but it’s been difficult to get through all the JLPT2 Kanji by rote memorizing.  However, luckily I have found a great app that will hopefully  make memorizing Japanese vocabulary and characters much easier!  I’m going to introduce to you guys something I’ve been using these last few months called Kanji Senpai! Of course, don’t just use that to remember words, I also recommend getting the book “A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters” as that will help you with remember particles and break down the characters.  Also, for Kanji Senpai if you really want to practice drawing the characters sorry but you have to pay for each lesson and they break down the lessons into JLPT section. I have paid for JLPT 2 N-1,N-2 and JLPT 3 N1 to practice but if you can’t afford it, please just use the free version it has no audio and Kanji writing but it’s still useful. Good luck with your studies everyone, I will continue to post more and look forward to my new blog posts on NYC Japanese cultures with Japanese stores around NY-NJ area.

[ENGLISH SUBTITLES] Miura Asami水卜麻美 Hokkaido Food Exhibition

Hi everyone, I’ve finally finished subbing this video I’ve been watching from Miura Asami on Hokkaido food exhibit.

It’s kind of short and cut off, only 11 minutes or so but there’s a lot of delicious Japanese Hokkaido food including

hotate帆立(scallops), kinkiキンキ魚(fish), bota ebiボタエビ(prawn), date ichigo伊達イチゴ(strawberry), buta豚(pork), tomorokoshiトウモロコシ(corn), lots of gyokai魚介/umi no sachi海の幸 (seafood), so it’s a Japanese lesson in food and high quality koukyu高級 food.

Think of this like a lesson on culture and Japanese language with lots of goodies involved.
Hope everyone enjoys, I’ve been starting Aikido 合気道 so I will be busy on my free time with some Japanese martial arts but I will also try to sub the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu video everyone has been requesting on called Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Jonetsu-Tairiku (Complete Ver.) youtube.com/watch?v=3vGtNqgGSMc.

I also want to add in more blogs on NYC as well and comics, which I may do when I have time.

私は皆に与えってあげるのプレセントは自分が一番好きな日本語の勉強アプリとサイトです。

Well for coming to my site this year I’m going to give you guys a special present, my list of top Japanese learning apps and sites I use and recommend!  For anyone that’s learning Japanese, I guarantee you there’s something in there for you that will help you out and improve your Japanese to the next level.  Hope everyone had a great 2013 and lets have a great 2014!


jasensei

[Android App] JA Sensei – 7.5/10

Personal Review: Good app for the android phone, goes over the basics and lots of vocabulary in various sections useful.  The Kanji stroke is useful for practicing writing Kanji.  The lack of detail and explanation will leave you looking to clueless on where to start studying from so best to use this as a reference on top of a textbook.

Pros: Breaks down vocabulary into different types(animals, sports, town), quizzes that let you favorite things you got wrong, counters, Kanji stroke and instant drawing, large vocabulary listing based off grade level, useful related words to vocabulary.

Cons: Costs money for app, no sentence examples for vocabulary, all Japanese verbs group together, hard to navigate from section to section, examples weak with lack of explanation, rote memorizing with lack of images or explanation.


jed_1jasensei2

[Android App] JED – Japanese Dictionary 8.5/10

Personal Review: JED Japanese dictionary is essential for any English learning with an android smart phone.  Unlike Google translate that requires internet connection, this app is offline and is fast with great examples and conjugation listing and tags.  Would highly recommend this with addition to another learning app.

Pros: Free app, fast, very large dictionary database, good deal of English translated sentence examples, verb conjugation listing, Kanji radical/grade level/code/JLPT for memorizing and find words, allows copying sentences and Kanji easily, and tagging/history make finding past words easy.

Cons:   No Kanji stroke animation, more a dictionary than useful guide for learning Japanese, no images/audio


kotobachan1 kotobachan2

[Android App] Kotoba-Chan 8/10

Personal Review:  The best app I’ve found for looking at great sentence examples for studying words, it has stoplight color-coded words for level mastery.  I would recommend this app for anyone who wanting to become proficient in Japanese and read Japanese newspaper or take JLPT exam.

Pros: Free app, fast, sorted by JLPT/common words, good for testing and memorizing words, tests words not mastered, fantastic quality of sentences and translation.

Cons:  No Kanji study guide, no explanation of grammar, lack of audio/visual.


studyjapanesenet

[Website] http://studyjapanesenet.blogspot.com/ 9.5/10

Personal Review:  Need an ebook? This site is the best for downloading audio and ebooks of textbook material for free.

Pros: Lots of ebooks and audio books to download including famous ones like Minna no Nihongo.

Cons:  Vietnamese links? Nothing else to complain about.


taekim

[Website] http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/ 8/10

Personal Review:  Very detailed website for English learners of Japanese.  Full of great content and is an ebook as well so this would be a great introduction to learning Japanese with the app it provides, as well as youtube channel and introduction material.   Material lacking for advanced students and those studying Kanji or more in depth vocabulary of sentences.

Pros: Free ebook, app, youtube channel, lots of material that is comprehensive, great beginner guide

Cons:  No audio, few visuals, lack of forum or discussion board, hard to navigate


erin

[Website] http://www.erin.ne.jp/ 10/10

Personal Review:  By far the most entertaining site I’ve come across.  It is not only completely useful for beginners from watching beginner video skits and advanced skits to following and reading the manga, culture quizzes, interactive vocabulary with photos/audio, and tests for understanding grammar.  This is a site I highly recommend for any Japanese learner.

Pros: Free site, high school video skits featuring popular Japanese cast, tests, interactive vocabulary with picture and audio, very detailed culture quizzes, manga with audio, 25 lessons with beginner and advanced, and key phrases.

Cons:  Java based


maggiesensei

[Website] http://maggiesensei.com/ 9.5/10

Personal Review:  One of the most helpful Japanese teachers online.  Unlike other sites that just provide content, maggiesensei responds to her comments and discussions while providing a personal Japanese touch to everything she is teaching.  This is a site I highly recommend to learn more in depth Japanese that isn’t just in textbooks.

Pros: Free site, funny and cute photos, great comment section and responses, audio for sentences, easy to navigate and find content, very detailed and helpful explanations.

Cons:  Video content would be a bonus.


[ENGLISH SUBTITLES] Kyary Pamyu Pamyu meets Katy Perry

This is a short post but I have re-uploaded and added caption to the video “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu meets Katy Perry”.

They actually met up to do a performance on November 1st, 2013 for Japan’s Music Station television program.   So the program had Katy Perry and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu as well as with notable Japan megastars AKB-48 and worldwide boy band One Direction.  I have the full HD video of Music Station video if anyone is interested, but it’s long so I’m not sure if I want to sub it.  Short blog but next post will finally be my Japanese app reviews on the Android OS.

またきゃりーぱみゅぱみゅの動画が通訳をしています。今回はきゃりぱみゅぱみゅがケイテイペリーとの初出会い。

十一月ケイテイとキャリーは日本の人気なテレビ番組のミュージックステーションに出演をして日本の夢なAKB-48とイギリスのワン・ダイレクションと一緒合わせているつもりでした。この動画とは関係ないけどただ知らずの事だけです。

Winter Updates

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is well!! 皆さんさしぶり!ごきげんよ!I have been away for a while learning more Japanese culture, studying via culture groups, and chat clubs, apps, and meeting various people while working.  I’ve attended the Japan Society in NY, Japanese Culture Group Meetup, my University Japanese Chat club, and want to check out Tenri Culture Institute for special seminars on traditional Japanese zen sounds and Tea-making.  I’m currently practicing Iaido (form of Budo training in the Japanese Katana) which is a sort of contemporary Japanese sword martial art.

Iaido (居合道 Iaidō?), abbreviated with iai (居合?),[3] is a modern Japanese martial art/sport[4]

Iaido is associated with the smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword from its scabbard or saya, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard.[1] While new practitioners of iaido[5] may start learning with a wooden sword (bokken) depending on the teaching style of a particular instructor, most of the practitioners use the blunt edged sword, called iaitō.[6] Few, more experienced, iaido practitioners use a sharp edged sword (shinken).[7]

Practitioners of iaido are often referred to as iaidoka.[8]

 

A few photos of what iaido looks like below.  The man is doing tamashigiri, which is using a live blade to cut the bamboo.  2nd, Obviously you need a attractive girl that’s badass. ;p

iaido_man iaido_woman

 

Also for what I’m looking to do, I want to take some time to give my reviews on apps so I will be starting a new section called the “Japanese Learning Tool Reviews” which will be giving my opinion on various websites out there that are free/paid and offer Japanese lessons that I have tested and reviewed with screenshots and my 1 to 5 star opinion with costs.

I will also include various apps like Rosetta Stone review and android/OS apps as well.  The first I will recommend will be coming shortly sometime.  おすすめのアップはこちらについて。。

 

 

[Grammar – Compound] Learning English and Japanese together 両方 and,and,and

This is a multi-part weekly section on learning grammar because I think a lot of times my grammar needs to be improved and Japanese find it harder to master English grammar as well.

Tae-Kim’s Learning Japanese is a great guide for grammar to follow and I will take time to go through parts that I want to learn and go over.

http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/grammar

これは文法上の新しいレッソンです。出来る限り毎週新たな英語文法と日本語の文法を説明する事です。たぶん、一番方法のは普通の会話のぶんぶんを分けて正しく意味を教えます。

自身が100%を完全に通訳出来られないから何がもっと良い答なら私は覚えたいです。

キームさんのサイトは全てを教えたくない、自分が選んだのは何をもっと知らいの事だけで。自分にもサイトで一人でどんどん全部を読んでもいいですよ。

http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/grammar/polite

First go over the beginning guide for Japanese verb conjugation(食べる、食べます、食べない、食べません、食べませんでした) and the special cases (いく、する、くる)

Today’s grammar will be on Compound, connection words together in both Japanese and English.

http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/grammar/compound

“It is very easy to combine a chain of nouns and adjectives to describe a person or object. For example, in English if we wanted to say, “He is X. He is Y. He is Z.” since all three sentences have the same noun, we would usually say, “He is X, Y, and Z.” In Japanese, we can do the same thing by conjugating the noun or adjective. The last noun or adjective remains the same as before.

______________________________________________________________

How to chain nouns and adjectives together

  • For nouns and na-adjectives: Attach 「で」 to the noun or na-adjective.

  • Examples

    1. 一般的 → 一般的で

    2. 静か → 静かで

  • For i-adjectives and negative noun/adjectives: Replace the 「い」 with 「くて」.

  • ※For 「いい」 and 「かっこいい」, the 「い→よ」 exception applies here as well.

  • Examples

    1. 狭い → 狭くて

    2. 彼女じゃない → 彼女じゃなくて

    3. いい → よくて

戻りました!Fall/Winter 2013 Schedule/ 秋と冬のスケジュール

Hi everyone, I’m back to making more blog posts now after taking a short break due to a change in my work/life.

I didn’t expect to have so many viewers with the Kyary Kyary Pamyu Pamyu video, over 12k in a month!

So I’ve decided to continue my Japanese studies and help everyone learning this season on my 3 greatest weaknesses.

1) Advanced grammar – なされる、してもしなくても、では、に

2) Japanese History/Figures – studying Japanese art, monuments, locations and words

3) Kanji (always) – better techniques, books, apps, blogs to study and read Kanji

I think this will help anyone studying on the JLPT as well, since any learning is helpful.

So the list of projects I want to work on this season include:
1) Subtitling one of my new favorite Japanese TV Show I watched called “Youは何しに日本へ” or “Why did you come to Japan?”

2) Study and write blogs about various parts of Japan and its culture.  For instance, pick a few places I’ve heard from friends like Hokkaido北海度, Aomori青森, Osaka 大阪 and study some of the culture of the city.

3) Was interested in learning about Japanese cooking 和食、Kendo県土, Bushido武士道, Japanese tea ceremony 茶の優 so I will study, post videos and such.

4) More Japanese songs and comics and finish up JLPT 3 lessons to start the JLPT2.

I may not get to all of these things, but those are my goals for this blog.

Thanks for checking out my blog.

このブロックを見るのは本当にありがとうございました。仕事のためにちょっと休みましたけどもう戻りましたよ!

もし誰か何が知りたいとか英語の質問とかコッメントをして出来るだけ早く答ってあげます。

じゃ、皆のご褒美はうまそうなパン屋と料理のビデオです!

[ENGLISH SUBTITLES] KPP WORLD TOUR IN USA COMPLETION

やっと終わりました!すべてが出来ました!

動画の英語の通訳はそういう難しいと思わなかった。タイミングや字幕の混じっているの事も結構大変だったし最後までに終了しているの時、何か最後までに終わっていてよかったです。

自分のYoutubeのChannelにアップロードしてぜひ観てください。今この「きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅの世界ツアー」のビデオの以上はないけどいつかもっと動画をアプロードしたいです。

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay but I have finished translating the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu World Tour 100% documentary into English.

It was a tough project since I never translated anything before and there were parts where I didn’t understand what they were saying so I may have just guessed what I heard.  I think it was a great learning experience for me as someone who is still learning Japanese.  I spent almost a good month on it and have many vocabulary words to teach, which I plan on writing as a blog post in the future.  I also have the subtitle files if anyone needs.

I hope everyone enjoys the subtitles and if there is anything wrong with the timing, sync, translations please let me know!

[English Subtitles] Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 100% KPP WORLD TOUR in USA Project

Hi everyone! I am writing here to let you know I have received a bunch of requests from English viewers to subtitle the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu World Tour video into English.

This is my first time doing translations so this will definitely be an interesting experience, but I’d like to apologize in advance if anything I write makes no sense.

I translate into English with a style of staying as close to what they are saying in Japanese word by word but in a grammatically correct English format.

I will copy and paste the srt and timing as I go through.

このビデオの翻訳するの事には楽しくて頑張ります!

The video got removed so I will reupload it and add captions  myself.

[NYC Culture] July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest Kobashi vs Chestnut

Hi everyone, hope your studies are doing well.

皆さんの研究はうまくなるに望みたいです。

Today I will be writing an article about America’s Independence Day(July 4th).

今日投稿している部分はアメリカの独立記念日の事である。

The history of Independence Day goes back to the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 from Great Britain.

独立記念日の歴史はもとも七月四日1776英国からアメリカの独立宣言しました。

” Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunion, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. ” – wikipedia

今日に日はだいたい祝いのためにアメリカの事を観て家族と過ごしています。たとえば、花火、パレード、バーベキュー、カーニバル、博覧会、ピキニック、野球の試合、家族の再開とかそういう事皆がよくしています。

I will be covering the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest here in Coney Island.  Takeru Kobayashi nicknamed the Tsunami was the official Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Winner from 2001-2006 until Joey Chestnut came and took over since 2007-now.  Kobayashi has not participated since 2009 due to a contract dispute.

でも、私は取材したいのは今日のネイサンズ国際「こくさい」ホットドッグ早食い選手権「はやくいせんしゅけん」、コニーアイランドで持っています。

2001から2006日本の小林尊は誰にも負けられないだけどアメリカのジョーイ・チェスナットは2007-2009に負かしました。

そして2010から今は小林はまだ参加させたくなくて契約のめぐる紛争がある観たいから。

However he has an unofficial hot dog eating contest at the Eventi Hotel( 851 6th Avenue, New York, NY) this year.
