Muzukashii Murasaki – Japanese Breakdown
The Most Difficult Purple
Today I was playing around with these two words with Sasha (my wife). At times I at least have a total brain fart when it comes to these two words. Muzukashii and Murasaki. The first being ‘Difficult’ (Muzukashii むずかしい) and the second being purple (Murasaki むらさき).
So I thought I’d make a quick post about these two words in Japanese.

Here’s a great break down for additional ways to use Muzukashii to remember it even better!
Muzukashii = is difficult
Muzukashiku nai = is not difficult
Muzukashikatta = was difficult
Muzukashiku nakatta = was not difficult
So there you have it murasaki ha muzukashiku nai!
