For the very rich and the very poor?

(Either you have a big enough house for it, or you don’t have the money for multiple residences, regardless.)


Literally: accumulate – generation – same – reside

Alternately: Multiple generations of a family living in the same house. In some cases, the phrase may be used to celebrate the good fortune of a household that has seen enough health and prosperity to allow this situation to come to pass.

Notes: This is a compound of compounds: 累世 refers to multiple (successive) generations; 同居 is “living together.”

The site I got this from has multiple version of the image with varying skin tones....

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.
