Aiso Warai (愛想笑い – Fake Smile)

  • Aiso Warai


    I am not good at doing aiso warai (愛想笑い).

    ‘Aiso warai’ is a diplomatic smile to get on someone’s good side.

    Aiso (愛想) is an attitude when dealing with someone or an affable attitude, and warai (笑い) means “laugh” or “smile,” so the literal meaning of ‘aiso warai’ is “an affable smile.”
    「愛想」は「人に接するときの態度」や「人当たりの良い態度」を、「笑い」は “laugh” を意味するので、「愛想笑い」の文字どおりの意味は “” となります。

    There are various opinions as to whether aiso warai (fake smile) is good or bad for human relationships.

    In my opinion, people who have the ability to make aiso warai well can smooth human relations.
