Friends of Aomori’s Social Media network will now feature a weekly Japanese word of the week, in order to showcase the beauty of the Japanese language, and expand the cultural exchange to include knowledge of Japanese language!
Edit: Please note that the graphic erroneously reads 2016, it should read 2017. Please excuse this mistake!
The first weekly word is: 友達 (ともだち/tomodachi) which means friend! This word includes two Kanji, which are Japanese characters adopted from Chinese, together they form the most commonly used word for friend!
