How do you feel and get any impression when you hear some Japanese?
Each Japanese word is composed of some characters, and each one having
a vowel. If you write it using alphabets, each letter in a word consists
of one or two alphabets, and one of it is a vowel, a or i or u or e or o.
Do you know Roman letters? We are using it for writing Japanese by alphabets.
Do you know that there are three type of Japanese letters.
One of it is Kanji, and other one is Hiragana, last one is Katakana.
Kanji have meanig on own character. It's convenience, because
we can show you a certain meanig only using one Kanji.

Have you ever heard Japanese?
Now I show you the most useful Japanese word. It's ...
If you had a chance to talk with a Japanese, saying
domo is necessary and easy
method to comunicate with him. It seems magic for you, I think.
But why ? ...
Domo have many meanings.
However ... if you know the certain word just on the scene,
you must better don't say domo. Because if you said domo many times,
I'm afraid that it make your vague image to him.
I beg your pardon.
