Translate to Romaji

The second one is "Kiite kurete arigatou gozaimashita."

It's often said that Japanese pronunciation is as it looks -- which is a bit vague, but there are no silent consonants like we have in English anyway.
Okay! Thanks a lot! I'm doing a presentation on Japan tomorrow and I thought it might be fun if I could say some things in japanese.

Btw: I start my beginners class in japanese in 2 weeks!! =)
Do you speak japanese?
I think that would be
nihongo ga dekimas(u) ka? but ^-^; I dunno if elizabeths frase is best
thank you for listening
>< cat find I guess you could always say doomo arigato(it means thanks literaly) I dont think that japanese PPl have an exeption to thanks I think they just say thank tou for every thing

thank you for the evening= dommo arigato
thank you= dommo arigato (or arigato alone)
(pics up another diccionary)
nope cant find ^-^; maybe someone that actually is japanese can help more

;) 😄
Nihongo ga dekimasu is possible as well -- that just includes everything (reading, writing, speaking, listening, etc.) whereas Hanasu means to speak.
Ok! Thanks for all the information. I think I'll manage now.

Domou arigatou gozaimashita Elizabeth-san & Lyn-san. :)
Ah! Just remebered. I have some other things i would like to have translated to R&oacute;maji, mabey you can help me. :)

"Follow the light, the light is you guide."

"Damn! Kyoko's summer is over."

"Oh my God! It's... It's King Geedorah the space monster!"

"See you in Japan!"


I have one thing i would like to translate too if u don't mind. How do you say
"I love rice"
"Please let me go to japan"
"Maria and I are very responsible"
"We will be ok"
"Your Welcome"
"Can you tell me where the bathroom is?"
"You all fight way to much"
"Shut up"
"I can't take it" and I think that's it. I kno this is a lot but I would just like to kno


P.S. Is it Arigato or Arigatou?

Here are the ways I would say ^-^; most of what you asked for

"I love rice" (gohan suki desu) (gohan oishi.i = rice (this rice) is delicious)

"Your Welcome" (do itashimashite) (I pronunce it doitashimas)

"Can you tell me where the bathroom is?" (sumimasen toire wa doko des(u) ka?)

"You all fight way to much" (Ii kagen ni shi nasai yo!)(literaly means behave youreselves!)ツャツャ hope ot works ;)

"I can't take it" (amari suki dewa arimasen) (litteraly means I don't like it (this) ^-^; hope its usefull)


P.S. Is it Arigato or Arigatou? (you say arigato (depends of the pronuncation of your language example I speak spanish so for me its ha (like in hat) ri (like in rice) ga (like in gasp) to (liken in token ><) you write arigatou ^-^; U when In the end of a word is often not pronunciated in Japanese :D so thats all I can do for you,

I wish I had any chance of going to Japan I put so much eford in my language learning I hope it pays out some day
They going to change quite a bit depending on who you're talking to -- but these are some more or less polite, standard ways for addressing strangers in Japan.

"I love rice"
Shiro gohan ga daisuki desu.

"Please let me go to japan"
Watashi wo Nihon e ikasete kudasai.

"We will be ok"
Watashitachi wa daijoubu desu.

""Your Welcome"
Dou itashimashite.

"Can you tell me where the bathroom is?"
Sumimasen (desuga) otearai (or toire) wa doko desuka?

""You all fight way to much"
This depends on the meaning of "fight" you want to convey and how many people "you" is. If it is just two people arguing:

Futaritomo kenka (amari nimo) shisugidesu.

Stop arguing could be:

Kenka wa yamete kudasai. Or Kenka shinaide (kudasai) Don't fight (please).

"Shut up"
Damare! or Damatte! or Shizukani! (Quiet!) or Urasai! (Noisy!)

And then there is the more polite way to say please be a little quieter:

"Moo sukoshi shizukani shite kudasai."

""I can't take it"
Mou gaman dekimasen.

"Maria and I are very responsible."
Maria mo watashi mo totemo sekininkan ga tsuyoi desu.

You can't really translate it directly, but I think "Kono kotoba wa watashi no seikatsu no shi ni igi no aru mono desu." (These words are the thing that have meaning for the poem of my life) is the closest. Or, you could say "These words are the force that gives the poem of my life meaning." "Because of these words, my life has meaning" is also possible -- but it would still sound a little funny.

I asked someone about "poem of life" in Japanese and apparently the literal translation I gave before is very awkward. So they suggested
"Kono kotoba wa watashi no jinseikan wo igi no aru mono deshita" instead.

Maybe the most natural way in Japanese is the words that have influenced the poem of my life....
I am trying to find the meaning of my last name. Urita is how it is spelled. I have heard it has its origins in Ancient Japan. Please contact me if you could provide any information on where I could find this out.
I have a question. When you say Ashleigh in a Japanese sentence, do you say Ashleigh? My friend is Korean, and u say my name differently.
Oh, and one more thing, Arigatou to all the people who helped me with my list of things. My friend and I are trying to convince our moms to let us go to japan when we get older, and they aren't budging an inch.
One last question. When you say Icchan, do you pronounce it (Ichan)?
