Why do some people in Japanese restaurants and establishments say "Irasshaimase" (いらっしゃいませ) whenever someone enters?

いらっしゃいませ means welcome. Since politeness towards strangers is encouraged, it is the right term.

ようこそ (Youkoso) also means Welcome but in more intimate contexts. It is just according to social distance.

Please comment below for feedback. Will be gladly appreciated

I never heard it explained that way, but makes perfect sense.

How to Watch Japanese Television Live Online: The No-nonsense Guide

Here I go dating myself, but 20 years ago when I lived in Los Angeles, I was so eager to immerse myself in anything Japanese that I’d take weekend trips to Little Tokyo and rent VHS tapes with anime recorded straight from Japanese TV, complete with commercials.

Ironically, after I moved to Japan in 1999, I had my parents mail me VHS tapes of American TV shows because being strictly limited to just eight or so channels of Japanese TV after spending an entire day in a Japanese-only work environment felt just a tad too immersive.

We’re no longer living in a VHS world, and the Internet allows anyone to visit Japan virtually, whether it’s with live streams or recorded shows. And thankfully, viewing from overseas, you don’t have to worry about the NHK man knocking on your door asking for money.

Watching Japanese TV on a regular basis can be the closest thing to experiencing life in the country. Consistent exposure to the language as it’s really spoken in modern day Japan as opposed to textbook phrases will dramatically boost your listening and comprehension skills.

Unexpectedly, binging on Japanese TV will also improve your ability to read kanji, hiragana and katakana. Most news and variety-type of shows feature subtitles throughout, allowing you to “see” words as they’re spoken. So put down that manga! You’ll be a speed reader before you know it!

I disagree that simply 'watching' something will either improve listening very much or understanding.  It may be entertaining but it actually takes work to improve your skills by taking and breaking down small examples, using repetition, working on mimicking pronunciation, speed, etc., and practice using it as much as possible.

Want to Improve Your Japanese? Tackle These 8 Major Problem Areas

Have you hit a big ol’ wall while learning Japanese?

Do you feel like you’ve collided head-on with a giant pile of bricks?

Or maybe, instead of bricks, that obtrusive wall is built out of kanji and complex Japanese grammar rules.

Don’t worry. You’re not alone. Most learners eventually reach a point where learning Japanese becomes much more difficult and your progress seems to slow to a crawl. Boredom or frustration sets in.

It can happen at different times for different people, but the reaction is often the same: You start making excuses not to learn. You’re suddenly too busy. You have better (easier) things to do with your time. It’s at this point most people will take a break or quit altogether.

Well, if you want to take a giant sledgehammer to this wall or just avoid it in the future, here are some tips to get you back in the game!

Hi there i have been following and reading this group for a while now while learning Japanese. I have started with kanji and was intregued by the fact that the country Japan is written with the kanji of day. My textbook doesnt give an explanation to that so why is that so?

Grammar a day

no (の) - A verb in base form will turn into a noun phrase.

ex: 結婚するのは大変だ。(Kekkon suru NO wa daihen da)

Getting married is such an effort!

結婚する (idiomatically getting married) is an irregular verb due to its base form suru (to do) conjugation. That functions as a verb.

No (の) is just added to make it a noun, just as -ing in getting married transforms it into a verbal noun.
