Japanese Words With No English Translation

By Sarah Holloway

We love sharing random beautiful things we come across with our Matcha Maiden communi-tea. Not only does our beloved matcha powder come from Japan, we also discovered some amazing words in the Japanese language that have no real equivalent in English (but that describe certain situations so perfectly). Here are some of our favourites:


Yugen Yoisho Ukiyo Shibui Nito-Onna Kuidaore komorebi Irusu Ikigai Bimyou Age-Otori
