沙美音 (サビネ) さん、
こんにちは/こんばんは! :smile:
Haha, very interesting comment about Hachi. :laughing:

You’re right about the superstition regarding 4.
If you go to a hotel in Japan, you might not see the room number ending with 4 and
the reason is exactly what you might have heard. :wink:

Shi sounds like the word for Death. Isn’t there superstitions around that and some people avoid the number four or was that just something I heard?

Also, sometimes, when I hear ‘はち’, I have to catch myself wanting to say ‘Gesundheit!’, cause ‘Hatschi!’ is the German sound word for sneezing. :sweat_smile:

Have a nice day!

After you count something and have to put counters after numbers, you should use yon and nana.
Also in order to avoid misunderstanding you should used nana-ji when you tell time.
The reason why is shichi and hachi are bit similar.

When would you use the different versions of 四 and 七 ? Is there a specific time they have to be used? Or does it not matter?

Aaryan san,
Konnichiwa. :smile:
The pronunciations are same however, we can use kanji for 3 and the word after name must be written in hiragana.

Arigatoū gozaimasu,
The number 3 is called San but San is also used as the English alternative for mr. or Mrs. so is there any pronounciation difference?
Thank you for your time and keep up the good work.
