Explanation:
"Subarashii" is an adjective meaning, wonderful, marvelous; amazing; fantastic; terrific, awesome, great, etc.

It can be used by itself to mean "wonderful!" "awesome!" etc.

When modifying nouns, it can be used, for example, "Subarashii tenki" (wonderful/marvelous weather), "subarashii ensoo" (stunning/superb performance), etc.

Hope this helps!
