You’re handsome.
Where is the toilet?
Hi, everyone! This is Risa from JapanesePod101. Today, I'm joined by… Cathy Cat from channel, Ask Japanese. Hi, guys!
And today, we’re going to do Ask Japanese style interview together with Risa and our topic is going to be… ask foreigners what words and phrases they want to use in Japan. If Japanese people want to go abroad, which words and phrases they would like to use abroad so I think everyone can learn something from this video so let's go and Ask Japanese and foreigners.
Is there any Japanese word or phrase do you want to use in Japan?
Probably, actually the only phrase that I would have liked, that I would like to know would be… “Where's the bathroom?”.
That’s very important.
You can ask them, like, トイレはどこですか? (Toire wa doko desu ka?) “Where is the toilet?”
What is it?
トイレは (Toire wa)

どこですか? (doko desu ka?)

Is there anything you’d say like when maybe she’s not around and you definitely want to say that like you want to order a Sneaky Beer while she’s not there or something like that, anything? Maybe you want to buy her a gift when she’s not there so you might need some Japanese. So what do you like to know?
Maybe, “How much is this?”, so yeah.
Oh that’s a good one.
You can say - いくらですか? (Ikura desu ka?) “How much is this?”
Yeah, that’s easy.
いくらですか? (Ikura desu ka?) “How much is this?”. Yeah.
I like that one - いくらですか? (Ikura desu ka?) “How much is this?” I like that one.
I keep running into people so I want to say sorry or excuse me.
You can say - すみません。 (Suimasen.) “Excuse me.”
すみません。 (Suimasen.) “Excuse me.”
すみません。 (Suimasen.) “Excuse me.”
すみません。 (Suimasen.) “Excuse me.”

Just easy way to say, the casual way to say it is - ごめん。 (Gomen.) “Sorry.”

ごめんなさい。 (Gomennasai.) “Sorry.”
Yeah, ごめんなさい。 (Gomennasai.).
Have you got any suggestions that will be useful for me?
For you to use.
かっこういい。 (kakkōii.)
かっこういい。 (kakkōii.) What does that mean?
If you see cool guys walking on the street - かっこいい。 (kakkōii.).
Oh, perfect.
かっこういい。 (kakkōii.)
But if you see a hot guy, you can say - イケメン (Ikemen.). That means like handsome guy.
Ah, イケメン (Ikemen.)
Beautiful because we see a lot of ladies and they’re doing a lot of stuff in the streets.
きれい。 (Kirei.) “Beautiful.”
きれい。 (Kirei.)
It’s easy one.
That is easy.
That is easy.
If you want to make it more polite, you can add desu ne into it so - きれいですね。(Kirei desu ne.) “You are beautiful.)
きれいですね。 (Kirei desu ne.) “You are beautiful.”
Maybe like wow - すごい。 (Sugoi.) “Wow.”
すごい。 (Sugoi.) “Wow.”
If you see something wow, you say - すごい。 (Sugoi.).
If something this great like amazing, you go like, great, amazing, those kinds of powerful words, you just go - すごい。(Sugoi.). Yeah.
I ask in the restaurants if it’s like okay to sit here or take aways that’s…
ここに座っていいですか? (Koko ni suwatte ii desu ka?) “Can I have a seat here?”
Can you repeat that?
ここに (Koko ni)

And for...like if I want to take foods take away, what should I say?
Oh take away?
You can - テイクアウトできますか? (Teiku-auto dekimasu ka?) “To go, please.”
テイクアウトできますか? (Teiku-auto dekimasu ka?)
We say takeout for take away.
Yeah, テイクアウト (Teiku-auto).
It’s like Japanese English.
テイクアウトできますか? (Teiku-auto dekimasu ka?)
テイクアウトできますか? (Teiku-auto dekimasu ka?)
Yeah, because I’m learning.
Yeah, I need to know how to say, does this have pork in it? Because I don’t eat pork or beef.
You can say - 豚肉は入ってますか? (Butaniku wa haitte masu ka?) “Does this have pork in it?
豚肉は (Butaniku wa)
豚肉は (Butaniku wa)
Take it slowly.
豚肉は (Butaniku wa), ready go.

If you just remember buta, if you just remember 豚肉 (butaniku), you can just go - 豚肉 (butaniku) in it?
豚肉 (Butaniku), 豚肉 (butaniku).
If they go yes then you know, no.
豚肉 (Butaniku), 豚肉 (butaniku), okay, gotit.
I just forgot, how do you say, please?
お願いします。 (Onegai shimasu.) “Please.”
Okay yeah, that’s because I’m always like, I ask a question and I feel like really rude because Japanese people are so polite.

I enjoyed this video not only because it was funny, but also because I knew the answers to most of the phrases that the English speakers were asking for. This helped to boost my confidence a little bit. Thanks!
