Postby richvh » Fri 11.21.2008 4:54 pm

赤くて小さい果物


I don't think I'm very good at descriptions though...

Ah, I did think of ヤシの実, but I figured the fruits didn't start with ヤ ^_^

Mine was: しじ 私事 personal affairs , but I realised し gives a lot of choices.
(BTW the earlier one could also have been 薬や)
