Japanese Sayings: 次から次へと

Contributors

In my last post, I talked about the Japanese phrase 一難去ってまた一難 (ichinan satte mata ichinan / "It's just one problem after another"), and it got me thinking about other Japanese phrases that express this idea of "one after another."

So, uh, yeah... that's what I'm writing about in this article.

In particular, I want to talk about the following phrase:

次から次へと
tsugi kara tsugi e to
[It's just] one (thing) after another.

This phrase is probably more common than 一難去ってまた一難. Although, to be fair, I don't hear it very often.

Both of these could described as 慣用句 (kanyouku), "phrasal idioms". We teach tons of them over at NativShark.
