Practical Japanese is a new series I am starting where from time to time I will publish a photo and/or video displaying Japanese characters whether Kanji, Katakana, Hiranga or a combination of them. I hope that seeing Japanese being used is a practical everyday sense will help expand the vocabulary of fellow Japanese learners so they may get familiar with seeing and hopefully using simple Japanese that they will most likely encounter and leave comments with any questions they have. Veteran Japanese learners and native speakers are also invited to brush up on what they most likely already know and respond to any questions left via comments.
