**** ニャー:NYA;voice of cat ****

In Japanese, we describe the voice of cats as "ニャー" or "にゃあ" while it is described as "meow" in English.

I think "meow" is wrong to describe the voice of cats because cats must close their lips to pronounce "m" and they can not.

**** 甘納豆:AMA-NATTO; sweet beans ****

"NATTO" is infamous for its smell and texture. But AMA-NATTO is far from NATTO.

In Japanese, "AMA-I" means "sweet" and AMA-NATTO is just sweet beans. I don't know why it has "NATTO" in its name.

**** 酒粕:SAKE-KASU ****

KASU means actually "dust" and often used to insult people by asserting them as useless.

However, "SAKE-KASU" is very useful food or food material.

SAKE-KASU is the dust which is made when they squeeze SAKE or Japanese rice wine.



SAKE-KASU is made from rice and used like as the MISO (fermented soy beans). SAKE-KASU has much more functionality to keep the health and beauty. Famous cosmetique product "SK-II" is said to involve some extract of SAKE-KASU.

Here is the link to the Wikipedia in Japanese.
