Welcome to "Romaji Nihongo Happy-go-lucky" This site is an easygoing tool for your Japanese learning. Let's have some Japanese music with Romaji. That makes you easier to pronounce and listen Japanese

How to use this site


1. You are speaking Japanese the moment you pronounce Romaji.

    Japanese songs with  Romaji will help you recognize Japanese  sound and Romaji. 

    Other songs are chosen as  some image of each article.

    Hope you like them, too.


2. If you click the first line of each article which is underlined, a dictionay will appear.

    The Hiragana, Katakan and Kanji are shown for each words there. That is for those who

    want to know Japanese characters. Also, you can get grammar knowledge in this page.

    These dictionary pages will be updated little by little. Mattekudasai ne! (Please wait!)


3. You can learn very simple phrase with Manga de Go Go NihonGO!! 

    But the speed of updating is very slow. Nonbiri ikimashoo! (Take it easy!)


4. You can get the very basic Japanese grammar through Learn Japanese.



I know that some of my English sentenses are awkward.

I sometimes want to stop writing.....I am on the learning plateau, and the

plateau is Nobeyama Koogen in Japan. It is not Tibet.

Please be patient for my mistakes. I really appreciate if you will send your comment through Inquiry.

Tsukiyo - a moonlit night - Nihonjin wa Jomon jidai kara tsuki o medetekitanodesu.

I have been seeking a hoothold to move ahead with this site.  *1
I searched many web pages regarding Romaji Vs Composition in Kanji and kana.  *2
I read some pages where the writer said that Romaji learning was useless.  *3
The writer is not Japanese and seems to have learnt Japanese.  *4


*1 Watashi wa kono saito o mae ni susumeru tame no ashigakari o sagashiteimashita.
*2 Roomaji tai Kanjikanamajiribun nikanshite ookuno webupeeji o sagashimashita.
*3 Roomaji gakushuu wa muyooda to kaiteiru peeji mo yomimashita.
*4 Sore o kaita hito wa nihogo o benkyoo shitakoto ga aru gaikokujin no yoo deshita.

I started this site for the good reason that Romaji helps people speak
Japanese easily without the study of Japanese characteres,
especially for those who;
1. want to visit Japan as a short trip
2. stay in Japan for their business
   They all say that they do not have so many chances to speak Japanese
   in their working places, since Japanese colleagues want to speak English.

   They mainly want to learn Japanese to communicate with Japanese people in town.

3. want to know words and phrases in some real context


I set my ocasional favorite songs in oder to share them with visiters.
And I expect that visiters get some alpha wave before they start Japanese study.
Even if those songs are not your taste, I am sure that you will notice the
importance of the alpha wave.

While I have been thinking about the utility of Romaji system, I saw an interesting page.
That is about Nippon Romaji Kai which was built in 1885.
This organization is authorized by Ministry of Education (present Ministry of Education,
Culture, Sports, Science and Technology). The main purposes of this organization are
to change Japanese notational system from written language-oriented system to spoken language-oriented system and to cherish Japanese, not to westernize.

The interviewer who visited this organization quates like this.
He (a member of Nippon Romaji Kai) said "Any language should be understandable when it is just spoken".

I agree them to the extent of these two points.

However, I have used a sort of Japanese Education style on this site.
Nippon Romaji Kai has long history and many famous intellectuals have joined and join in it such as Tadao Umesao, Torahiko Terada, and Takeshi Shibata, and so on.


I am going to introduce the 99 system which was proposed by Nippon Romaji Kai in 1999.
I would like to know how does each Japanese learner think about many types of Romaji System. Which is better for you?

Although I am a Japanese language teacher, there are so many things I do not know
and have to know. Also, there are many things I do not want to do and want to do......


This is a story of my "Gekkoo".

I could not find a word, gekkoo, in this song.
So I made my own story, "Tsuki no hikari", but a song.


Gekoo : Kango

Tsuki no hikari : Wago.

One day trip- white flower-sea gull. You must find Puff, the magic dragon in the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy this movie with the music below!

                          Oh,Puff, the margic dragon lived by the sea

                          And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

                          Puff, mahoo no ryuu ga kurashiteta

                          Umi ni aki no kiri, tanabiku Honah Lee





One of the reason why her song is so beautiful and comfortable is that she trys to avoid using "Kango" which is imported from China. The Kango has strong power of word -formation. But it seems not to have the soft sound of  "Wago" which is originated in Japan.

When I was teaching Japanese to a lady who is Doctor of Literature, she gave an exclamation of joy, "What a beautiful!". It was a second or third lesson for her. I have just taught a sentense in Japanese, not at a level of each vocabulary. She repeated it after me. I guess she was resonant with my speaking and it's meaning. This is the key, I think.

The sound is the voice of living nature. Language is a pulse.

If I can speak like a bird or wind......

Aselin Debison - somewhere over the rainbow- what a wonderful world

I found out what the voice I had treated in this page in the past was not Norah Jones' one.

This  humbug in You-tube has resulted in the attention to Aselin Debison.

I have no objection to this kind of humbug. Listen carefully. That's the best way for us.

Rare shape of cirrus clouds on the 13th of January, Japan

I don't know whether this shape is rare

or extremely natural.  *1

Is this so-called an 'aerosol' phenominon,

or human-made aerosols that is expected

to prevent Global Warming?   *2


The clouds shaped like flames inclined me to anxiety.  *3

Times has changed.  *4

The beautiful shape of clouds no longer makes me simple joy.  *4

beyond the language barrier (1)

This site was set up in order to put a subsidiary meaning and some roles for the main site;





I have been working as a Japanese language teacher in Japan and abroad for the last 20 years. 

Many Japanese people don't know how much money has been spending for Japanese Language Teaching as a foreign language from ODA budget.


I think private companies or ordinary citizens will make more efficient contribution at a low price toward the people who want to learn Japanese.  


Since 3.11, we have been confronted with great difficulities.

1. Reconstruction of devastated land and town

2. Reconstruction of the life of victims of great earthquake/tsunami and nuclear disaster in


3. How will the people in the world build peaceful land and life?

4. How will we  build sustainable society?


The language exists.

My hope is that we will be beyond the language barrier. 




Anyhow, I've started my blog in English and Romanized Japanese.

I have been happy-go-lucky since I was 0 years old.
