New Japanese word for February 15:

増築 (ぞうちく、zouchiku): extension or augmentation, usually in reference to refurbishing a building.


こどもべや、 おじいちゃん、 おばあちゃん の はなれ など の ぞうちく の ようぼう が おおい です ね。

kodomobeya, ojiichan, obaachan no hanare nado no zouchiku no youbou ga ooi desu ne.

You really want to extend (your house) with things like a children’s room and a detached room for your grandpa and grandma, don’t you?
