Japanese puns

Learning Japanese puns

駄洒落 [dajare]
“Dajare’’ is a pun that gets its comic effect by playing with the meaning and pronunciation of Japanese words. Use these puns at your own risk. You might be accused of making an “親父ギャグ” [oyagi gyagu], that is making an “old man’s joke.” If you would like to keep up to date with the latest Japanese puns check out dajare station.
