4 foreigners who became traditional Japanese artists.
Foreigners looking for traditional jobs in Japan may have a tough start, but it's not impossible. Look to these four as examples of success.

Learn the difference between Japanese Homophones!

会う 合う 遭う

#あう  
 ·  Translate
 
Throughout the course of your Japanese studies, have you ever come across an unfamiliar kanji, only to look it up and realize it was a word you thought you already knew? “But I thought ‘はやい’ was written ‘早い’!” you might have said. “What’s this ‘速い’ business?”

Well, as it turns out, there are quite a few Japanese homophones—words that sound the same—that have very similar meanings, with 早い and 速い being examples. These types of homophones exist in English, too, like “insure” and “ensure” or “affect” and “effect,” but they probably don’t cause you much confusion in your day-to-day life. When learning Japanese from scratch, however, each new homophone pair encountered creates a little linguistic speed bump on the road toward fluency and comprehension.

If you’ve struggled with this in the past, I can’t blame you. I bet that even some Japanese people wouldn’t be able to come up with the exact differences between all of the examples we’ll cover today. Instead of letting that discourage you, though, think of it as a fun challenge!

In this guide, we’ll cover a large selection of Japanese homophones, explain the differences between them, and give you examples of how each are used. Are you ready, Tofugu students? Why do Tofugu teachers wear sunglasses? It’s because Tofugu students are so bright!
You learned the kanji for あう as 会う. Then you find out about 合う and 遭う. Time to start untangling Japanese homophones, words that sound the same but aren't.

On closer look, this is ingenious! I'm taking that the fishnet stockings she wears inside are a symbol of Ariel's mermaid tail~!

Some people believe that Android M doesn’t deserve the title of Android 6, mainly because it isn’t as big of an overhaul as previous Android 1.x releases have been or because it doesn’t accompany the visual changes we’ve seen on previous 1.x releases.

While on some level this is true, going over the long list of improvements does really put into perspective how big of an update M truly is.

Let’s go over all the features we will(or might) see on Android M:
• Now on Tap
• Permissions Management
• SD Cards can be “merged” with internal storage
• Android Pay
• Native fingerprint authentication
• Automatic app data backups
• App Links (you’re going to see less of those “what do you want to open this in?” prompts)
• Doze and App Standby
• Multi Window(currently hidden, uncertain future)
• Theming support(currently hidden, uncertain future)
• Dark theme(removed, uncertain future)
• Customisable Quick Toggles along with other UI tweaking
• Visual Voicemail Support
• Redesign of the Clock Widget and Music Identification Widget
• New “Memory” Section in Settings(it was there before, but hidden)
• Support for deleting screenshots directly through the notification centre after they’ve been taken
• Landscape mode available for the Google Now Launcher(feature will likely be backported to older versions of Android)
• New app and widget drawer with scroll bar support and vertical scrolling
• Built-In File Manager receives a bump in functionality
• Native tap to wake support
• Ability to disable “heads up” or “peeking” notifications
• Native 4K output support
• Stricter APK validation
• MIDI support
• USB Type C support
• New boot animation
• Introduction of a “voice interaction” API to allow better interaction with voice actions in apps
• Toggling battery saver by voice
• Ability to undo and redo text changes with bluetooth keyboard shortcuts
• Multi-selection to merge, delete or share has been added in the contacts application
• Faster text selection along with a floating toolbar for text actions
• Default apps UI
• Direct share can allow you directly share stuff with contacts through the share menu
• Much more granular app info
• Native bluetooth stylus support
• Split-screen keyboard
• Mobile radio active bug will be fixed
• Better do not disturb along with repeat caller exceptions
• Bluetooth scanning to improve location accuracy
• Native flashlight API
• Easier access to Multi volume controls(ringer, media, alarm)
• Smoother volume scrubbing (credits to Jason Efstathiou)

Putting all those features aside there are also a number of under-the-hood improvements that seem to have had a very positive impact on both performance and power usage.

I’m puzzled as to how someone could call this a “minor” update.

Tofugu eats the craziest Japanese ice cream flavors. And they're pretty dang おいしい.
Up north on the island of Hokkaido is the city of Otaru, a touristy town about an hour or so outside of Sapporo by train. A little off the beaten Otaru track is a small ice cream shop: 北のアイス屋さん (Kita No Aisu Ya San), which translates to something like “Ice Cream Shop Of The North.” Hokkaido …

Why is it ひとびと and not ひとひと? Tofugu explains sequential voicing.
