    Grin Shiritori Word Chain Thread

    Shiritori (しりとり) is a Japanese word game in which the players say a word that begins with the last kana of the previous word. Please join the game to practice Japanese or just to have fun.

    Word chain samples: レタ (retasu, lettus) ---> (suika, watermelons) ---> ラス (karasu, crows)

    (You don't need to use color or bold seen above.)
    Please make sure to use romaji and add English translation whenever you can.

    Advanced players may play the game with themes and added rules, but beginner players can simply post [romaji + English translation] and ignore all the advanced themes/rules.

    Rules:

    Re: Shiritori Word Chain Thread

    Hmmm since the food theme is over...

    I'll do a good interime one that's food but leads into a new theme: Japanese Landmarks

    寿司大 (すしだい)- One of the most famous if not the most famous sushi restaurants at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. I waited in a 4 hour long line to eat there and I knew it was good because by the end of the meal, I had forgotten that I waited 4 hours for it.





    ----

    Also mikkih, I've had kurogoma ice cream before in Kyoto as well XD At Gion Kinana as part of sampler plate

    cmertb, I see... it sure is food, very expensive one

    Sai, Great photoes. I made matcha and kinako mochi icecream cakes for dessert thx to you today.

    Right now... too sleepy to find any great places, so I go with: いたみくうこう (伊丹空港) It's an airport in Osaka.

    Edit: I wanted to say 稲荷大社 - many manga features this place - but officially named 伏見稲荷大社.

    Well, if you're mentioning maccha and Fushimi Inari...

    うじ (宇治 Uji, in Kyoto prefecture)

    Byoudoin (tied with Fushimi Inari) is my favorite place in Kyoto ^.^

    btw, would it be troubling to add a translation to the words we use? I didn't understand one word from page 1, so I thought, I could have you know, learn something. xD

    You just had to use Uji....and make me figure out what the hell starts with Ji >.>

    This feels like it's cheating but, it works and I have a picture to go with it!

    う again ... It's not that I want to see the Robot Statue, I'd love to visit the Ghibli museum one day. There isn't such thing like つねの像 (statue of Utsune), is there?

    How about
    じしげんじものがたりミュージアム:宇治市源氏物語ミュージアム /The Tale of Genji Museum [official site] - I never visited this place though.

    It's been over 24 hours, so feel free to change a theme if anyone would like to continue with letter "む."

    Since we're at it, famous people (doesn't have to be Japanese I guess)

    (Of course statues of me exist, probably not in Japan though )

    Since Utsune posted... I was going to post a musician, but I need to get going so I PASS this turn.

    ブラームス(Brahms, johannes) is not his full name, so it's out.
    ブラッド・ウルマー (James Blood Ulmer)if I start from his middle name.

    Next person still starts with ぶ/ブ.

    A famous person whose name starts with ぶ・ブ? I was about to go with ブルドッグ・ソース (Bulldog sauce) if we were able to pick any word.

    ブラッド・ピッ (Brad Pitt)

    Re: Shiritori Word Chain Thread

    I almost chose トーマス・エジソン(Thomas Alva Edison) since "天才とは、1%のひらめきと99%の努力である。(Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.)" is one of my favorite quotes, BUT it ends with ン.

    So, I go with another actor: トム・クルー (Tom Cruise) 

    Edit/add: ブルドッグ・ソースis popular near Tokyo (in Kanto). I almost always use イカリソース instead.

    Re: Shiritori Word Chain Thread [NEW]

    "Zu" of all things... Can't think of someone whose name begins with "zu" from the top of my head, so I'm gonna cheat and disregard the topic all together:

    ずがい (頭蓋) cranium

    Not too sure why that was the first thing that came to my head but there you go (No pun intended.)

    It's a tough one. I hope a general body part is acceptable.

    ふくらはぎ, calf (calves) of the leg(s)

    Next person starts with ぎ (ぎ or き if you are not registered as a translator on MH, excluding Utsune, Sai_the_Shaman, and asari of course.)

    hmmmm not technically a body part, but I just finished translating KuroBasu for this week and I think this works (loosely )

    擬似的な「皇帝の眼」(ぎじてきなエンペラーアイ)

    My first three pointer XD
    1) starts with Gi
    2) Comes from a manga
    3) (technically) a body part >.> maybe sorta...
