it really isn't that difficult if you dont aspirate. If you find yourself stumbling when you try to pronounce Japanese, it's probably because your aspirating too much, since English aspirates pretty much everything and Japanese doesn't.

I think sen goku refers to the goku hero you see in plays... Not the goku from DBZ a different one.

Sengoku: "warring states". The story supposedly takes place during the sengoku period.

It's 'sen' and 'goku', not 'sengoku', which makes it 'thousand' and 'words'. BTW, I love this tongue-twister...it's hilarious, especially the clip. The one Kikyou did is even harder.

well...I'm with Sen Goku being the "sengoku jidai" or the "age of the country at war" which is the time Kagome is transported to.

Bushi means warrior

but...as for the overall meaning...I'm sure it's just a bunch of random nonsense that's thrown together to sound funny
They just start with sengoku and change the sound slightly with each word

not quite finished (by a longshot) but i'm leaning towards "carefully the emporer's meal verse-thing ...( sen go-kugo ku)", maybe an odd reading of "gotsu" as 'five+generic-counter'.

there are a lot of things that make it sound like a bunch of grumpy people pounding out grain - THUMP-THUMP, or people polishing/sharpening their weapons. maybe it can even be read multiple ways.

but i know next to nothing about tongue-twisters in japanese and what's allowed or not.
and my ear isn't fine enough to catch any lengthened vowels and the like (a "kuu" would fit really well.) also, i think it might be "sen goku goku goku go ..." but every time i listen i change my mind. :o
