Hello Kitty Yubisashi Mini Phrasebook (English-Japanese)

By Hello Kitty Yubisashi 

Another collaboration with the famed icon of Japanese Kawai Culture Hello Kitty, the Hello Kitty Yubiasashi Mini Phrasebook is thematically structured into several chapters like airport, buying food, at the doctor and shopping.

Yubisashi means finger pointing in Japanese: just point at the phrasebook’s illustrations to learn the Japanese phrase or expression.

It provides a concise grammar, useful background information regarding culture, customs and conventions besides simple pronunciation guidelines and a 1500-word vocabulary.

Due to Naoko Takeda’s and Yasue Yoda’s illustrations the book also makes for a cute souvenir once you return to your home country.
