Welcome to the first Tanoshii Tuesday on this blog! Tanoshii Tuesday, you say? What’s that? Tanoshii is a Japanese word that means fun. I’ve also seen it translated as pleasant and enjoyable. I’ve decided to create a space here just for lighter, sillier posts. Sometimes I come across things in Japan that are fun but don’t fit into my usual travel posts. No promises that I’ll do this every week, but now that I have a nest for official “fun” to roost, maybe I’ll get better at feathering it.
Today’s fun is a collection of snapshots of picture cut-outs. The Japanese love picture cut-outs. We see them everywhere we go, whether it’s an outing to a festival or just to the mall. Sometimes they are ads for products and sometimes they’re just cartoon versions of our surroundings. It never takes much coaxing to get Liam to pose — surprise, surprise — so I’ve amassed quite a few over the last few months. Poor kid gets dragged to enough shrines, temples and shops that it seems only fair for him to have a bit of a giggle, too, when we’re out and about.
What a cutie!

The one near the bottom that you took in “Fussa in April” is for “Children’s Day”, which was yesterday, coincidentally.
It says “Children’s Day, Hai cheese” (‘Hai cheese’ is taking photos and is the equivalent to “Say ‘cheese'”)
Thanks! We’ve enjoyed seeing all the streamers. What a nice concept for a holiday. I know my son enjoyed having the day off school!
This post is kawaii! Looking forward to more fun moments.
Thanks! I may do one soon on the oddly-worded English phrases we see everywhere…
That will be fun but you may have to bleep out some words. Haha
So true! This is a family blog after all! 😉
