Suteki - Adjective, Japanese in origin

Suteki is japanese for "beautiful". Like some other Japanese words, fans of Japanese culture will sometimes use this word in their english sentences.

A distinction must be made between "Suteki" and "Kawaii".
"Kawaii" is cute, a less serious word.
"Suteki" is beautiful, a word with more impact and used in more serious context.

Kawaii would apply to a plush toy, a figurine, or a costume.

Suteki would apply to a gorgeous female, a situation which is extremely nice, or something very touching such as falling in love.
"Suteki!" (Upon seeing a swimsuit photo of a beautiful girl)

"Suteki da ne?" (Beautiful, isn't it?)
