    CLOSE YOUR EYES.  目を閉めてください me-o shimete kudasai

    CLOSE YOUR MOUTH. 口を閉めてください kuchi-o shimete kudasai

    CLOSE YOUR HANDS. 手を閉めてください te-o shimete kudasai

    1. I transliterate the letter - を - as it is pronounced: o. When using a keyboard, the traditional spelling -wo has to be typed in to get を.

    2. In English we have to use "your" in these phrases. In Japanese this is not necessary. The form "-te kudasai" is a polite imperative which can only be directed at a person I am talking to.

    3. Leaving out the "kudasai" makes this imperative an informal one which may sound a bit rough.
