Japanese Word for Mist
We use Japanese word “霧(きり-kiri)” for translating English word “Mist” into Japanese. I showed this Japanese word image on the left side of this page.
However when we translate the Japanese word “霧” into English, provably (I think-but not sure) we use “Fog” more often than “Mist”.
And we have a few other similar meaning words in Japan such as “霞(かすみ-kasumi)”, “煙霧(えんむ-enmu)” and “靄(もや-moya)”. Most of the time these three words are mainly translated as “Haze” but also often translated as “Mist” or “Fog” in Japan.
