What is しよう?
“～しよう” is the plain form of “～ましょう”.
If you don’t know what ましょう is, please read this article first.
We use ～しよう when we invite the listener, make a suggestion to the listener, or state your own intent.
ましょう and しよう emphasize your will, so it sounds like “I want to do ○○, so let’s do it together”.
