A Japanese vocab cheat sheet! It’s actually a tri-fold, so six pages of words to learn. Honestly, I had no idea the Japanese had so many ways to count things. I knew there were at least two, but this thing mentions:

– small round
– thin flat
– bound
– vehicle, electrical appliances
– long slender
– cup/glass of liquid
– small animal
– age

I imagine there’s some lovely wordplay in the Japanese BDSM community when determining which system to use.
