Word of the Day
My friends and I are preparing for a trip for Japan. I was gaining knowledge about Japan using the handy dandy Japan travel guide and learning the terms and definitions in the glossary. I came across something very amusing, and no it’s not the word that’s hilarious, it’s the definition.
Chikan (痴漢, チカン, or ちかん) is a Japanese term meaning “molester” or “pervert”
I know that Japanese have a word for everything, literally. Really it doesn’t surprise me, but the main point to make here is that this is on a Japanese travel guide, perhaps warning people to be aware and or stay away from trains and enclosed spaces. I’m worried now, are you?
