[Giongo Gitaigo by Flashcards]



Refreshing flavors that do not linger unpleasantly. Things that do not leave an objectionable feeling. Carrying a good nuance, this world is often used in reference to the clothing and personalities of people.

Sample text:

  • この料理りょうりあぶら使つかっていないので、さっぱりしていておいしい。
    This dish does not use oil, so it is refreshing and delicious.
  • そとからかえって、シャワーをあびたら、さっぱりした。
    When I got home from the outside and took a shower, it was refreshing.
