Yojijukugo are four-kanji expressions that make up some of the best-known and best-loved Japanese idioms. These include gems like "kill two birds with one stone," "time is money," and many more!
These expressions are all over Japanese literature, TV, and even your favorite manga and anime, but they are rarely taught in the classroom. Learning these yojijukugo expressions and working them into your conversations and writing will bring you that much closer to your goal of fluency in the Japanese language.
