Let’s talk about Vegetables in Japanese
The next stop is Vegetables. Vegetables in Japanese やさい (野菜) read as Yasai. Growing up、 I am not a fan of vegetables. I am not a picky eater; I just don’t like vegetables. But growing old and my body started acting weird、 I realized that I needed to have vegetables in my diet. I am a fruit eater, so if I’m going to choose between fruits and vegetables、 I’ll choose fruits. Even though I am old, I still have a sweet tooth and bitter foods are not my thing. Bitter in Japanese is にがい (苦い) read as Nigai.
苦い食べ物はきらいです。 (にがいたべものはきらいです。I hate bitter foods.)
Let’s all eat vegetables or you will regret it just like how I regret it as I get older.
Let’s check the vegetables that I am familiar with:
If ever you want to know where the vegetable store is, you can either say:
(Su-pa- ha doko desu ka?)
Where is the supermarket?
(Yasaiya ha doko ni arimasu ka?)
Where can I find the vegetable store?
(Yaoya ha doko ni arimasu ka?)
Where can I find the greengrocer?
If you want to ask someone their favorite vegetable, you can either say:
(Sukina yasai ha nan desu ka?)
What are your favorite vegetables?
(Ichiban kiraina yasai ha nan desu ka?)
What is your least favorite vegetable?
Note: * Tomato – I included it in the list of vegetables even though I already included it in the category of fruits. I grew up knowing that Tomato is a vegetable, but it is also a fruit.
** 野菜屋 is not often used in Japan. But it is translated as a Vegetable store.
*** 八百屋 means Greengrocer.
