(Yes, ShibataBread is Japanese Podcast 08) Edo Period must've been cool

This podcast will teach you how to swat at the flies as you eat your new ramen-inspired products on Doll Festival day in Japan. Oh, and ShibataBread was a crappy Japanese history student.

Japanese Lesson:

お気の毒に Oki no do ku ni (I'm sorry to hear that)

or, if you're talking with your close friend in private,

それは残念ですね。So re wa zan nen desune (My condolence)


ひな祭り Hina matsuri
The Japanese Doll Festival (雛祭り Hina-matsuri), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3. Platforms covered with a red carpet are used to display a set of ornamental dolls (雛人形 hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.

  1. wazzzup Shiba!

    question: i believe i've asked this before on the gaki forum but really didn't get a straight answer. but why do many Japanese shows use subtitles? is it just to add more character to the show? or is the language hard to understand even for japanese people?

    and as always, thanks all the stuff you provided til now. laterz fooooo!

  2. first off, Call of the Wild this week goes to Mrs. Shibata. the Japanese version of a fly doesn't even come close.

    btw, thanks for the lesson this week. i learn something new every time.

    Question: ever since i was a little kid, i've always wanted to know why Japanese magazines or Manga are read starting from the last page. is there a specific reason for this and are all books and reading material in Japan read this way?

  3. Thank you for answering my question about 'itai - pain' (i used my real name now) (jeroen is a male name in case you were wondering :p )

    the call of the wild goes to the bzzzt, you definitly need the 'z' to make it sound like a fly.

    Great podcast! I'm gonna look for some more questions. Bye!

    Hi, I have two questions.
    1:what does shibatabread mean? shibata and bread?
    2:I heard japanese are sort of racist toward other asian people(like better). Is that still true? I guess this will be a third question. How come some restaurant have signs that "japanese only"?

  10. Yeh I live in Kyoto at the moment but my mates use osaka-ben so I hear 'ita' instead of 'itai' but when i lived in Tokyo I would hear 'ite' alot... another example is late, kansai 'oso' but the real word is 'osoi' and again in Tokyo 'osee'. I hope that helps at all! (笑)

    Thank you for your awesome podcast!
