Reminder: This community has one rule, go to the profile and make yourself familiar with it. The people who contribute these words & definitions are not paid, are all intelligent, and often spend a lot of time to craft their entries; we wouldn't have an active community without them and I'm grateful for our wordsmiths.

If all you offer as a member is curtly telling others that they've made an error, worse if you are actually mistaken regarding such critique, then your comments are not welcome here.

natsu·ka·shii [nats-ka-‘shE]:
origin: Japan; natsuku= to be fond of, to want to keep close out of a familiar sense of fondness.

To feel nostalgic in a pleasant and small way.

Example: to eat a familiar food from childhood & be transported back in time via memory. One might wistfully say, "Natsukashii, na..." or in English, "That takes me back..."
