Karaoke/Караоке

I heard about Japanese karaoke but have never tried it until recently. Japanese karaoke is a fun way to have a party for a group of friends, big or small. The karaoke place has several rooms, the choice of a room depends on the size of the party.

Я слышал про караоке в Японии, но только недавно смог увидеть что это такое. На картинке ниже видно несколько дверей, они ведут в комнаты для караоке. Каждая из комнат отличается по размеру, цена тоже зависит от размера компании.


The rooms are soundproof for the most part. When you walk down the hallway you can hear that there is something going on behind the door, but can't really tell what they are singing. At the same time, the sound inside the room is cranked up very high, it is loud!

Комнаты по большей части звукоизолированы от коридора. Проходя по коридору слышно, что в той комнате играет музыка, но что и как -- особо не понять. Только открыв дверь осознаешь какая хорошая звукоизоляция, потому что внутри комнаты музыка играет на всю катушку.


There was a fat book of available songs to choose from. Once you know what you are going to sing, you type your choice into an oversized remote control, and it queues the song. After you are done singing, the program scores your performance (number 66 in top right corner of the TV).

Микрофон выдают на входе, в комнате лежит толстая книга со списком песен. Выбранная песня заносится в очередь песен через пульт с экраном. По окончании пения программа выдает оценку песни (номер 66 в правом верхнем углу телевизора).


It was fun.

Было весело.
