Re: What does Rikiishi mean ?

The kanji for "rikiishi" 力石, literally means "strong stone" or "hard rock" or something to that effect

re: Fundamental questions about the Japanese language? Ask h

"ai shite iru" means "I love you"

"ai shite ru" is the same, but it is more casual, used more in spoken Japanese
