Word of the Day: Zero-Yon

WOTD 3.14.2018 (zeroyon) FIN 3

Daily Japanese lesson! What do YOU want to learn?

Today: ゼロヨン. Comprised of ゼロ(zeh-ro: Zero) and ヨン (yohn: Four), short for a 0-400m drag race. 400 meters calculates to 1,312 feet, so it’s slightly less than the actual quarter-mile (1,320 feet). However, since Japan utilizes the metric system for units of measurement, they refer to the quarter mile as the 0-400 …similar to how Metric France refers to the Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese as the Royale w/ Cheese.
