A gaijin going about his daily business has received his inaugural ‘Nihongo jyouzu desune’ of the Reiwa era.

“I was out and about, spoke a few words to some local and then got hit with my first ‘nihongo jyouzu desune’ of the new era,” said Bryan Phillips.

“Watashi was chotto bikkurishita that it took so long.”

Phillips was surprised it took over 14 hours since the abdication of Emperor Akihito.

Foreigners across the country are now eagerly awaiting their first ‘Ohashi joyzu desune’ of the Reiwa era.
