“Omiyage”


 

A shop at Haneda (Tokyo) Airport

羽田空港のショップにて

I’ll buy Japanese sweets for 25 co-workers at my office.

職場の同僚25人に日本のお菓子を買って帰るよ

It is a Japanese “omiyage” style .

日本の「おみやげ」式ね

This looks good!

これいいね!

This, too!!

これも!!

Contains 12  Contains 30

12個入り  30個入り

In the morning

I got to go to work!

仕事に行ってきます!

Even Japanese don’t give so much omiyage …

日本人でさえあんなにたくさんおみやげはあげないけど・・

In the evening

夕方

People could not take all, so I bring the left over back.

みんな全部はとりきれなくて、残ったのを持って帰ったよ

He is still an omiyage beginner… or just he wanted to show them?

まだまだおみやげ初心者だわ・・・てか単にお菓子を見せたかったのか?

 

フ(hu) is  a katakana moji  for example:

フフフ  (an onomatopoeia for suppressed laugh or smile).

フは例えば「フフフ」(おさえた笑い)に使われるカタカナ文字です。
