25 Highly Useful Kotowaza--Japanese Proverbs with Sound and detailed explanation
Proverbs are sometimes thought of as clichés—but with a poetic touch. Proverbs, however, are not meaningless, overused phrases. They often express in a pithy and precise way complex meanings that would otherwise require a great deal of explanation.
Japanese tend to use kotowaza often—more often than most English speakers. These 25 proverbs represent some of the more useful kotowaza heard in daily Japanese life.
You‟ll notice them in movies, in writing, and most importantly spoken by friends and colleagues. Knowing common kotowaza will not only help you express your thoughts more clearly, but also take your Japa-nese to a whole new polished level.
