Even though we translate both of the Japanese words “身体 (からだ – karada or しんたい – shintai)” and “胴体” as body, usually “身体” means whole body while “胴体” represents the part of the body which is excluded head, arms and legs from a whole body. And “身体 (からだ – karada or しんたい – shintai)” and “体 (からだ – karada)” is same meaning.

Even though I used a word “頭髪” for translating head hair, “髪の毛 (かみ の け -kami no ke)” is usually more popularly used in our daily conversation.

The word “ (しり-shiri)” or “お尻 (おしり-oshiri)” are more popularly used than “臀部 (でんぶ-denbu)” in daily conversation.
