I'm hitchhiking around Asia, learning bits of the languages on the road as needed.

I'm now in Kagoshima after over a month in Okinawa.

comment さまよう vs ぶらつく vs うろつく for the sense of “to wander”?
Great answer thank you! In my case I'm wandering around Asia and currently Japan. When I tried to look up the terms in dictionaries there were negative connotations like "loiter" mentioned in some of them as well as just different ones like "hang around".

comment How to thank somebody for their hospitality?
For some example of what I mean by hospitality, people who I didn't previously know who gave me a ride in their car, took me out for a meal or drinking, or invited me to stay at their home.

comment How to thank somebody for their hospitality?
I actually had jotted down "おもてなし" on my notes to look up next time I had internet access but misheard で in place of て so couldn't figure out what my note was. I think I actually asked my hosts about how to say "hospitality" and this is what they could think of (-:

@Earthliŋ: I think you can submit an answer based on this. I did allow that the sentiment might be expressed in a very different way in the two languages. That said, I would also like to know which word is best when I want to talk about the hospitality I recieved to other Japanese.

I'd like to hear a constructive criticism from the downvoter about what's wrong with this answer. Without such I can't learn from this )-:

@Earthliŋ: No I haven't learned that before. Is it a set phrase for this situation or just a loose/natural translation?

comment How to choose the right kanji from several choices?
Do you mean specifically the words that share a reading/kana/pronunciation but have different kanji? And of those do you mean those that have different meanings, those that have the same meaning, or both?

I proceeded to ask the same thing on linguistics.SE the following day: What is the maximum number of forms a (modern) Japanese verb can take?

comment Is there a Japanese word for “area with a collection of izakaya stalls or booths”?
Thanks for this useful answer! I note that neither term is in any of the online resources I've looked at. Would you consider them to be "words" in Japanese or "phrases"? I wonder if any print dictionaries contain entries. They do seem at least a bit idiomatic to me at least.
