“Good Husband and Wife” Day

Culture & Seasons

Do you know what day November 22nd is?

It is “ii fufu no hi” (“Good Husband and Wife” Day)

This celebration started in 1988, and lots of couples submit marriage registration.

By the way, why November 22nd?





It is because 11 can be read as “ii” and 22 as “fufu”

This kind of wordplay, called “Goroawase”, has been used as a mnemonic technique, especially in the memorization of numbers.



It must be interesting to search other anniversary dates using “Goroawase”?
