Hayaguchi kotoba

I've been learning several Japanese tongue twisters. Give 'em a try -

  • Aka-pajama, ki-pajama, cha-pajama (red pyjamas, yellow pyjamas, brown pyjamas)
  • Namamugi namagome namatamago (Raw wheat, raw rice, raw eggs. "Mugi" pronounced "moo-ghee" and "Gome" is pronounced "goh-may")
  • Kono neko koko no neko no koneko kono koneko ne. (This cat is the kitten of the cat here, this kitten!)
  • Niwa no niwa ni wa, niwa no niwatori wa niwaka ni wani wo tabeta. (In (Mr) Niwa's garden, two chickens suddenly ate a crocodile)
