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
