I just learnt a fun phrase I wanted to share with you guys! 

朝 - asa - morning
寝 - ne - sleep
坊 - bou - Buddhist Monk
する - suru - to do
朝寝坊する - asanebousuru 

Buddhist Monks often wake up at 4am. So, if you see a Buddhist Monk sleeping in the morning, he’s overslept. 

So 朝寝坊する - asanebousuru means to oversleep. Neat eh?!
