10 Japanese Phrases for Morning Routine Posted by on Aug 31, 2016 in Culture, Grammar

Phrases for your morning routine~.


So, kids are now back to school starting this week in our area. Finally I feel like summer is over. ๐Ÿ™‚ My boys were not too crazy about going back to school as they have been sleeping in until late morning all summer. Waking up on time to eat breakfast and make it to school was a challenge after relaxing too much during the last 2 and half month.

I don’t know about yours, but here is how our morning routine goes, all explained in Japanese below. ย Do you have any similarities?



Well, my boys don’t really say, “ใŠใฏใ‚ˆใ†ใ”ใ–ใ„ใพใ™(Ohayo gozaimasu)”. I am lucky if they tell me just “ใŠใฏใ‚ˆใ†(Ohayo)”.
