When in Toukyou

Memorize these three indispensable phrases:

1) Sumimasen, watashi wa bakana Amerika-jin desu.

2) Isshou ni sekusu o shimashou.

3) Watashi o warawanai de kudasai.

And that's all you need to survive in Japan. I plan to use #3 a lot. Especially after using #2.

So does "Watashi o warawanai de kudasai." Mean "I'm sorry I didn't know you were under 18"?

Ok, can you translate for us? I have no idea what was said there. Sometimes I think I need to learn Japanese just to read your blog ;)

I understand #1 and #2. LOL, Grant. LOL. I don't know what "warawanai" means, so I don't know #3. Though if it has to do with #2, I'm sure we haven't gone over that vocabulary in class :P.

When I was in college, I saw somebody wearing a shirt that had #1 written on it. I thought that was the best thing anyone could wear to Japanese class.

I'm with a few other people here in that I don't know what "warawanai" means.

Grant said...

everybody - the translation has been posted today.

ayako-san - quit giving it away - I want the others to dangle awhile. :p

doug - I wonder if it was in reference to Ichi the Killer, who wears the number 1 on his outfit.
