    Shikō Sakugo


    I like a kind of methods for solving problems, shikō sakugo (試行錯誤).

    Shikō (試行) means “to try something” and sakugo (錯誤) means “error” or “mistake.”

    That is to say, sikō sakugo means that you try to find a method for solving a problem by repeating trial and error.

    As mentioned above, this four-character idiom is often translated as “trial and error.”
    英語では “trial and error” と訳されます。

    However, somehow many Japanese people refer to “trial and error” as ‘torai ando erā’ (トライアンドエラー – “try and error”).
