Yesterday, I saw @TourGuide_KENZO’s Twitter page which summarized the

origin of the name of the tree, and I thought it was a good idea, so I introduce it.

●Sugi (Japanese cedar) …straight growth ⇒ straight(mas’sugu) tree(ki) ⇒ straight Ki

(tree in English) ⇒ Sugi (Japanese cedar)

●Hinoki (Japanese cypress)… The tree used to build the Ise Shrine ⇒ God of the

sun (Amaterasu) ⇒ Tree of the sun (Hi-no-ki)⇒ Hinoki

●Matsu (Pine tree)… a tree that serves as a guardian tree ⇒ Displayed at New Year’s

⇒ Waiting (matsu in Japanese) for the gods to come down ⇒ Matsu (Pine tree in Japanese)

●Kaede(Maple)… the leaves look like frog’s hands ⇒ Kaede

On Sunday, I thought that if I could remember what was said in English like this,

I would be able to remember the words as well. I’m going to take the TOEIC test today.

It’s not easy to score, but I’ll do my best.

The weather looks like it’s going downhill. Have a good day!
