Ashita wa Ashita no Kaze ga Fuku (明日は明日の風が吹く – Tomorrow Is Another Day)

  • Ashita wa Ashita no Kaze ga Fuku


    When you feel down due to unpleasant experiences, you may brood over that or worry about the future.

    In such cases, remember the proverb asita wa asita no kaze ga fuku (明日は明日の風が吹く).

    Ashita (明日) means “tomorrow.”
    Kaze (風) means “wind.”
    Fuku (吹く) means “to blow.”
    「明日」・・・ “tomorrow”
    「風」・・・ wind”
    「吹く」・・・ “to blow”

    Therefore, the literal meaning of this proverb is “the tomorrow’s wind will blow tomorrow.”
    すなわち、「明日は明日の風が吹く」の文字どおりの意味は “the tomorrow’s wind will blow tomorrow” となります。

    In other words, since tomorrow will be a different day, you should let things go as they will, and there is no need to be worried.
