あけすけに言う
akesuke ni iu

This idiom is used when someone says something in a blunt manner.


This idiom is used when someone says something in a blunt manner. “ake” means to reveal or to bring something to light; “suke” means to be transparent.

Another, and, probably original, usage of “akesuke” is that a gap has opened, and the other side is visible.

あの人、なんでもあけすけに言う。 
That person always speaks frankly.

  • あの人 ano hito—that person
  • wa—[topic particle] (written with hiragana “ha” but pronounced “wa” when used as particle.
  • なんでも nandemo—anything; everything
  • 言う iu—to speak
