Secret of the Bathtub


 

American bathtub   cold  cold

アメリカのバスタブ さむい さむい

I miss the deep bathtubs in Japan!!

日本の深い浴槽が恋しいよう!!

But one day I suddenly realized that

でもある日 わたくしはとつぜん気がついた

The water levels are almost same!!

水位がほぼ同じだということに!!

You design the bathtub not to overflow!!

水があふれないバスタブを設計してるんだね!!

It’s amazing!!

スゴーイ!!

…Thank you

・・どうも

Though Japanese bathroom is designed to be OK with overflowing water.

日本の浴室は水があふれても大丈夫な設計だけどな

Wash body here, then soak

ここで洗って、それから浸かる

ブルブル ぶるぶる (boo ru boo ru) is an onomatopoeia for shaking. For example: Shivering with cold, trembling with excitement.

ブルブル、ぶるぶるは震えを表すオノマトペです。

例えば寒さにふるえる、興奮にふるえる。

I lived in a small town in Japan as a town clerk until middle age with no experience living abroad at all. My major at university was Japanese literature. An innocent Japanese has come to America!!
