Have you ever wondered how to make the sound of a typewriter in Japanese? Or how to describe the noise a cat makes?

Well, wonder no more. We present to you – Japanoises! (Yes, we were so excited that we made up a word.)

Which one’s your favourite?

Other Japanese sounds that almost made it into our top ten – ‘Doki-doki’, which is the sound of an anxious heartbeat, and ‘Chokon’, which is, literally, the sound of silence.

How do you describe these sounds in your language?
