うみ せん やま せん
umi sen yama sen
Another group of kanji that are oh-so-easy to read and yet, with today's post, I'm issuing you a challenge. The kanji are just "ocean" and "mountain" broken up by a couple of "thousands," but what does it mean?
I'll give you the strict definition in both Japanese and English, and then (without consulting web resources or Nirav) tell me what you think is the intended application of this 四字熟語。
A snake that lives in the ocean for a thousand years and in the mountains for a thousand years becomes two dragons.
Hint: It has nothing to do with rollercoasters.
