Money and Prices in Japanese
Hey guys~! I haven't been posting as much so here is an important Japanese lesson you'll need if you plan on doing any shopping in Japan~! Money in Japanese is お金 - おかね - okane - oh kah neh いくらですか?-ikura desuka - ee koo rah des kah - How much is it? (ちょっと)高いです - (chotto) takai desu - (choh toh) tah kai des - That's (a little) expensive 安いです - yasui desu - yah sue ee des - That's cheap いただきます - itada kimasu - ee tah dah key mas - I'll take it おねがいします - onegai shimasu- oh neh gai she mas- I'll take it (セーター)がほしいです - (seetaa) ga hoshii desu - (seh tah)* gah ho she ee des - I would like (a sweater) *sweater has long vowels in Japanese hold the "a" and "e" a little longer* In Japanese they say "en" instead of "yen" - 円 - えん - eh n 百- hyaku- 100 一万- ichi man- 10,000 十万- juu man- 100,000 一円 - ichi en - one yen 五円 - go en - five yen 十円 - juu en - ten yen 五十円 - go juu en - 50 yen 百円 - hyaku en - hyah koo en - 100 yen **三百円- san byaku en - san byah koo en - 300 yen 五百円 - go hyaku en - 500 yen **六百円- rop pyaku - rope pyah koo en - 600 yen **八百円 - hap pyaku - 800 yen 千円 - sen en - 1,000 yen **三千円 - san zen en - 3,000 yen **八千円 - has sen en - hassen en - 8,000 yen 一万円 - ichi man en - ichi mah n en - 10,000 yen 十万円 - juu man en - 100,000 yen ** These numbers are irregular, so be careful with these ones. The rest are all regular. 200 is ni hyaku, 4,000 is yon sen, and they all go along that pattern.** Combine the numbers to make different prices: 千五百円- sen go hyaku en - 1,500 yen 十万八千百円- juu man rop pyaku sen hyaku en- 106, 100 yen 一万三千円- ichi man san zen en- 13,000
