September 16th, 2010 · No Comments


In Japan usually we use Arabic Numbers in our daily life but also we still use Japanese Kanji numbers in several cases especially when the sentences are written in vertically. Here I’ll show you how to count numbers in Japan and Japanese Kanji Numbers.

  • 0 -- (ぜろ)
  • 1 -- (いち)
  • 2 -- (に)
  • 3 -- (さん)
  • 4 -- (し)
  • 5 -- (ご)
  • 6 -- (ろく)
  • 7 -- (なな)
  • 8 -- (はち)
  • 9 -- (きゅう)
  • 10 -- (じゅう)
  • 100 -- (ひゃく)
  • 1,000 -- (せん)
  • 10,000 -- (まん)
  • 100,000,000 -- (おく)
  • 1,000,000,000,000 -- (ちょう)

一(1) through十(10) we have several pronounce ways for each number but on this post I showed most popular pronunciation way for these each number. If you have interest, please refer by yourself or send me email.
