I have talked about "karaoke" with several foreigners on this week. Surprisingly none of them know that karaoke was invented in Japan. I thought this fact is popular. The word "Karaoke" is consisted of 2 Japanese words, Kara and Oke. "Kara" means "Vacant", and "Oke" means "Orchestra". In short, "karaoke" means "vacant orchestra" in Japanese. I have explained this to them. Additionally I don't like karaoke because I don't know many songs.
