Numbers Vocabulary     Japanese Romaji Vocabulary

A Note on Vowels :

The Japanese language is based on 5 vowel sounds : a, i, u, e, o

They are pronounced : a as in ask ; i as in weu as in soon ; e as in get and o as in oh.

The Romaji long vowels ā, ī, ū, ē signify emphasis, are pronounced twice as long, and hence are also written as aa, ii, uu et ee.

ex. īe = iie. However, the long vowel ō becomes ou and not oo ex. gakkō = gakkou.


 Let's Study the Conversation - At the Railway Station (Kaiwa o Naraimashō - Eki de) :

Note : In Japan, 'san' is used as a suffix to a personal name and is the equivalent of Mr, Mrs, Miss and Master.
