☆  memory  思い出


The two main ways to use memory are firstly your memory is your ability to remember things. Secondly, a memory is something you remember from the past. That is the meaning we are looking at today. Most often, this word is used in plural form, as in “memories” however if you are talking about just one memory, then that is OK too. For example, “My earliest memory is of X.” Here are some common ways to use today’s word:

I can’t watch that movie, it brings back bad memories.
I have many happy memories of my childhood.
Thank you for the memories.
Collect memories not things.

And if you’re traveling somewhere in summer, this is a common saying: “The tans will fade, but the memories will last forever.”
