日本語はこちら
Today’s theme is “eyes (目:me)”. Did you know that in Japanese Idioms, the most frequently used word is eye?

Between Lovers

Frequently used Expressions

I woke up (目が覚めて:me ga samete) at 6 today, and had a look at  (目を通して:me o toushite) the newspaper while having breakfast. I couldn’t properly see the small print, so I started to feel like my eyes have gotten worse (目が悪くなった:me ga waruku natta) lately…”
I’m sure you’ve all used phrases such as these before. In idioms such as the ones above, eyes have the meaning of being “one of the body’s organs” or “something with the function or workings of looking at things”. In truth, they actually have several other meanings, too.

Today, we’ll look at three idioms where they have the meaning of “the ability to tell the difference between things”. Please have a look at the conversations below.

In a Conversation between Friends

A: Have you seen the new movie by the director Minamino?
B: Yeah, I’ve seen it. The stroller race was great. He sees things differently than others (目の付けどころが違う:me no tsukedokoro ga chigau)– just what you’d expect from a former comedian.

This has the meaning of looking at things in a different way to others, and can be used as a compliment towards others.

In a Conversation between Coworkers

A: The new guy, Yamada is honest, intelligent, and really works well.
B: You’re really not a good judge of (見る目がない:miru me ga nai) character. Yamada is late everyday, his work is full of mistakes, and he never apologizes either. It’s the complete opposite!

This means that someone does not have the knowledge or ability to correctly judge things or people. This is used when you challenge someone’s (or sometimes your own) judgement.

In a Conversation between Lovers

A(Female): This restaurant is great. The service is good, and the food is delicious, too.
B(Male): I looked at so many reviews and considered everything when deciding to come here. Looks like I made a good choice(俺の目に狂いはなかったな:ore no me ni kurui wa nakatta na).
This is used when you have confidence that your judgement is/was not mistaken. It sounds like you’re full of confidence, so be sure to only use it around people you are close with.

What did you think, everyone? This is only a small snippet of the idioms that use “eyes”, there are much more than you’d believe. Please have a look for some more new phrases, and try your hand at using them, too!

Eye in Japanese: me, explained with its two kanji expressions

Home » vocabulary » Eye in Japanese: me, explained with its two kanji expressions

By Masaki Mori

How to say “eye” in Japanese

Japanese people would say “me”. It is the Japanese word for ‘eye’ or ‘eyes’. In this blog post, I will explain it with its two different kanji expressions. And also, I will explain how to use it through example sentences. Let’s get started!

Contents

Definition and meaning of “me”

Let me start with the definition and meaning of “me”.

  • me – 目/眼 (め) : a noun meaning ‘eye’ in Japanese. This word can also work as a plural noun meaning ‘eyes’. Learn more about Japanese plural.
It has the two different kanji expressions. The first one is more widely used; the second one is used in particular fields like literature and medical science. So, when we want to write “me” in kanji, we should use the first one.

The second kanji character can also be pronounced “manako”. But the use of this pronunciation is quite limited. It is used mainly in literature, I think. Of course, we can say “manako” to mean ‘eye’ or ‘eyes’, but this would sound a bit weird even to Japanese native speakers.

Then, let me explain how to use “me” through the example sentences below.

Example #1: how to say “eyes” in Japanese

kanojo no me wa utsukushii – 彼女の目は美しい (かのじょのめはうつくしい)

Her eyes are beautiful.
Below are the new words used in the example sentence.

  • kanojo – 彼女 (かのじょ) : a pronoun meaning ‘she’ in Japanese.
  • no – の : a case particle used after a noun or pronoun to make its possessive case. In the example, it is used after “kanojo” to make its possessive case, “kanojo no”, which means ‘her’ in Japanese.
  • wa – は : a binding particle working as a case marker or topic marker. In the example, it is put after the noun phrase, “kanojo no me”, to make the subject in the sentence.
  • utsukushii – 美しい (うつくしい) : an i-adjective meaning ‘beautiful’ in Japanese.
This is a typical usage of “me”. In this example, it works as a plural noun to mean ‘eyes’ in Japanese.

Example #2: another usage of “me”

watashi no me wa kumot te iru – 私の目は曇っている (わたしのめはくもっている)

My eyes are cloudy.
Below are the particle and new words used in the example sentence.

  • watashi – 私 (わたし) : a pronoun meaning ‘I’ in Japanese.
  • no – の : the same as explained in the last example. In this example, it is used after “watashi” to make its possessive case, “watashi no“, which means ‘my’ in Japanese.
  • kumot – 曇っ (くもっ) : one conjugation of the verb, “kumoru”, which means ‘to get cloudy’. In the example, it has been conjugated for the better connection with its following word.
  • te – て : a conjunctive particle put after a verb or adjective to make its te form. In the example, it is put after the conjugated verb, “kumot”, to make its te form, “kumot te”. Verbs need to be changed to their te forms to be connected with “iru”.
  • iru – いる : an auxiliary verb used to express the continuity of the action described by its preceding verb. In the example, it is used after the te-formed verb, “kumot te”, to express the continuity of the action, ‘to get cloudy’. So, the meaning of “kumot te iru” can be interpreted as ‘to be cloudy’.
This is another typical usage of “me”. Again it is used to mean ‘eyes’ in Japanese. When we want to say “eye” or “eyes” in Japanese, this word is the best choice in most cases.

Summary

In this blog post, I’ve explained “me” with its two kanji expressions. And also, I’ve explained how to use it through the example sentences. Let me summarize them as follows.

  • me – 目/眼 (め) : a noun meaning ‘eye’ in Japanese. This word can also work as a plural noun meaning ‘eyes’. The first kanji is more widely used; the second one is used in particular fields like literature and medical science. So, when we want to write “me” in kanji, we should use the first one. The second kanji character can also be pronounced “manako”. But the use of this pronunciation is quite limited.
Hope my explanations are understandable and helpful for Japanese learners.
