Moekana - u

POSTED BY DANNY CHOO On Fri 2011/05/27 16:24 JST in Mascot

う (u) for "usagi"

Following on from the previous hiragana which was い, today we learn "う" (u) which is pronounced like "oo" as in "moo". Today's word is "うさぎ” which means rabbit. The katakana equivalent is "ウ".
Today's models are Mirai Suenaga and her pet rabbit Momo-chan illustrated by Ikkyu-san.

Example

You can use this in a sentence like:-
uchi no usagi tabecha dame.
うちのうさぎ食べちゃダメ。
No you cant eat my rabbit.

Do note that "うさぎ" is often written in Katakana like "ウサギ".

Exercise

Write out "う” 50 times on a white shirt with lipstick belonging to your male boss or teacher and say "う" 20 times while your head is submerged in the bathtub filled with hot water.

What other word could I use thats Japan or otaku related?
