Now Out: Essay 2017 on 埼 (Saitama) and 5 New-Monics

The 334th essay has posted! Essay 2017 on 埼 (Saitama; small peninsula) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

One could envy Saitamans. Their prefecture has gorgeous mountains, acres of colorful flowers, icicle displays, and a whitewater river. One city is in a national park and has a  Shrine of Wolves, plus maybe a “Mikado” connection. Another city, “Little Edo,” has lovely old buildings and “Candy Street.” However, Saitama is the butt of jokes, especially in a “dissing” manga that’s now a movie! 

Using the accompanying game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

Also, Ulrike created the following new-monics (which are free!):

獄 (1274: prison)
施 (1318: to carry out)
袖 (2030: sleeve)
貼 (2067: to stick on)
鍋 (2088: cooking pot)
