    Question Anyone Here Speak Japanese?

    If so, I have a question. What the correct way to pronounce furisode?

    Thanks!

    Several people here speak Japanese; most of them are online in what is for Americans the middle of the night.

    Minam or allezfred can help you if no one else responds.

    My pleasure.

    Shame it's not a good example, but in this video you might be able to catch the pronunciation of 'furisode'(actually it's included in a coined word 'furisodation' =furisode + tion)

    "Furisodation" by popular J-pop singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

    hatachi hatachi hatachi hatachi (hatachi=20 years old)
    atashi atashi hatachi furisodation (atashi=I, furisodation=furisode +tion)

    (Japanese people at the age of 20 participate in a coming‐of‐age ceremony and many of the ladies wear furisode on the ceremony day.)

    If you are a native English speaker, I'd go with phonetically foo-ree-sew-day with the "foo" having a very soft "f" sound like the word "who" as rosewood mentioned.
