Can you see the road ahead?

前途有望
zen.to.yuu.bou

Literally: before / front – road – is / have – aspire / desire / expect

Alternately: Good prospects. A promising future. High chances of being successful. Said of a person’s overall prospective career rather than the success or failure of a more limited enterprise.

"excite ism"

Supposedly, Amazon (in Japan) has high hopes for this product: turn-signal gloves. Source: a blatant ad, in a page full of ads, that has taken the shape of a news article but should fool nobody. Also note how the light looks like an “L” and would probably take a while for drivers to parse if they saw it at night on the road.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.

    Interesting product. Never saw that in Japan when I was there but I guess it’s not too popular yet (:
