The Human Body Parts

Welcome to the guide on the human body parts. Down below is a list of common parts of the body which sometimes come up in daily conversations at some point, and a few others that are a bit more specified. These are great for your Japanese vocabulary to know because you don’t wanna miss out on specific subjects just because you haven’t felt like studying it. Nevertheless, you are here and that means you are interested in learning them. Become familiar with what the different body parts are called from top to bottom, head to toe.
