Japanese Street Slang

4 Reseñas
Japanese Street Slangis the first and only exposé of the rough and ready, raw and down-dirty street language as it is used in Japan today. Here's how they really speak: The hustlers and high rollers, the teens and Tokyo yuppies, the gangsters and their ladies of the night. Witty mini-essays trace the fascinating origins of many expressions and the rollicking example sentences reveal just how and where they may be heard.

WARNING: Many of the expressions featured in this book are extremely potent. Beware of using them inadvertently—mass panic might ensue.

Review: Japanese Street Slang

Reseña de usuario  - Lindsay - Goodreads

Oh man, this is another thing for the file of 'Weird Japanese Stuff'. I was kind of shocked over how vulgar it got in parts, although it was an amusing read. It was an interesting look at some of the darker areas of Japanese culture, but not something that I'll use for my trip there. Leer reseña completa
