In Japan, do you say AM/PM or you use 24-hour system (or you just ignore those completely since it’s obvious is it day or night)?

That is not funny at all.
You can feel free to ask us.
Actually the は should be put after 今, however, it is omitted in a casual conversation.

Hello guys
Just a silly question! In formal expression 今、何時ですか?, is は hidden then いま, or is it not need there?

I can understand what you feel.
We have two pronunciations for 4.
However, when you say 4 o’clock, you have to say yoji in Japanese. :disappointed:

What’s wrong with “shiji” as four o’clock? The guy says it doesn’t make sense. I don’t get it :disappointed:

14 hours is ‘juu yo ji kan.’
‘thank you in advance’ means ‘よろしくおねがいします.’ :wink:

Olga, in Japan 24-system is also common enough, I’ve even read that 25 and 26… hours are possible)
Yuki-san, is that true? So 14 hour is “juu yo ji”, not “juu yon ji”?
