What Japanese word means “empty orchestra”?
Answer: Japanese words are everywhere in the English language. For instance, did you know the word karaoke is of Japanese origin? Many Japanese language learners may already know this, but not only was karaoke invented in Japan, the name was taken straight from Japanese. The word karaoke is derived from two Japanese words. “Kara” comes from the word karappo meaning empty or void and “oke” comes from the word okesutura or orchestra. Karaoke is a form of entertainment where an amateur singer sings along with recorded instrumental music.
