Tawawa (たわわ – Growing Richly)

  • Tawawa


    I think that there is less opportunity to use it, but I like the term ‘tawawa‘ (たわわ).

    Tawawa is an onomatopoeia that means that fruits or cereals grow richly.

    This term comes from the verb ‘tawamu‘ (たわむ), which means that trees or sticks bow or bend.

    Since branches of trees bow when a lot of crops grow, tawawa has come to have the meaning of “rich.”

    In most cases, tawawa is used by combining with the verb ‘minoru‘ (実る – literally “grow”), such as ‘___ ga tawawa ni minoru’ (~がたわわに実る – ___ grow richly).
