Hiruyasumi (Learning Japanese Words with Dogs)

ひるやすみ - Hiruyasumi - (n.) Lunch Time

The term hiruyasumi means lunch break/ noon time recess. Hiru means "noon" and yasumi means "rest". Often, it is depicted by a person eating their lunch or relaxing under a tree. 

Since the dogs only eat twice a day, lunch time means nap time for the pack. Asti works 24/7. Just like any good employee, it is imperative that we provide our hardworking pooches their well-deserved hiruyasumi to recharge.

P.S. Please feel free to correct/ augment me on this description, Mr. K.


  1. Happy napping. Have a serene and easy Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Well, when learning another language, you have to start with the most important lunch, food, rest relax.....oh, and walk. Sounds like you've got your priorities right!

  3. Perfect! I'm not anywhere near fluent, but I know that one. :)

    Love that picture of Asti!

  4. No one ever told me some get fed twice a day, er some thing is wrong here, Hey, I only get fed once, ER, twice a day you say... I won't forget.

  5. Rest time why it looks like belly rub time to me. Oh stretch it out!
    Thanks for being a friend
