Kushi-Katsu Pictogram

Another fun discovery at Izakaya Masa this day.
When ordering a Kushi-Katsu, I realized how amazingly similar the Kanji symbol for "Kushi" (skewer) was to my tasty meal..

The resemblance was uncanny..
So why did I struggle so much to learn these in school??

Yama = mountain..


Kawa = river..

Piece of cake!

And my everyday staple Soy Sauce Shoyu..

Hey Dennis - At least you went to school.....I fought tooth and nail to NOT learn Japanese, and now I'm paying for it!

Hi Kirk, yeah I pretty much abandoned my dream of being able to read the Japanese newspaper one day.. So sad.
