100th Youtube Video Post: Japanese Idiom 足が棒になる My Dogs are Barking

  • ashi ga bou ni naru
  • to walk one’s legs off; have very sore legs; my dogs are barking
  • Have you ever walked so much your legs feel like boards? Next time that happens, say, “ashi ga bou ni natta.
  • Literally, “legs become staffs.” This comes from tired legs getting as stiff as a board.

Please check out the Japanese lesson page here. (Free, of course!)

And if you have an iPhone or iPad (or both), check out the Learn Japanese Idioms app from which this was taken.

Or if you don’t have an iPhone (Android version coming soon!), we also have it packaged as a PDF and MP3 download here.
