Japanese: ใŒใ„ใ˜ใ‚“
Romanized: Gaijin

Tips to Remember the Japanese Word:
1. Mnemonic: Think of "guy" (a foreigner) walking into an "inn" in Japan. "Guy-in" sounds like "gaijin."
2. Kanji Breakdown: ๅค– (ใŒใ„, outside) + ไบบ (ใ˜ใ‚“, person) = ใŒใ„ใ˜ใ‚“ (outside person).

– Gaijin (ใŒใ„ใ˜ใ‚“) is a colloquial term for a foreigner or non-Japanese person. It is derived from the more formal ๅค–ๅ›ฝไบบ (ใŒใ„ใ“ใใ˜ใ‚“, gaikokujin), which literally means "foreign country person."

Other Words that Mean the Same Thing:
1. ๅค–ๅ›ฝไบบ (ใŒใ„ใ“ใใ˜ใ‚“, gaikokujin): More formal term for a foreigner.
2. ็•ฐไบบ (ใ„ใ˜ใ‚“, ijin): An old-fashioned term also meaning foreigner but less commonly used.

Alternate Meanings/Slang:
– While "gaijin" is commonly used to refer to all non-Japanese people, it can sometimes carry a negative or exclusionary connotation, depending on context and tone.
