How do you say 'I love you' in Japanese?

The direct translation would be [あなたを]愛している "[anata wo] aishite iru." However, this carries with it a much stronger connotation than it would in English and is not as frequently or casually tossed around.

The much more often used, and in most cases more appropriate, expression would be [あなたが]好きです "[anata ga] suki (desu)" or [あなたが]大好きです "[anata ga] daisuki (desu)."

The Japanese often drop subjects and objects from sentences if they are implied. As such, "I" and "you," 私は (watashi ha [hais pronounced wa in this context]) and あなたが/を (anata ga/wo), respectively, can be dropped, the former more so than the latter.

Additionally, dropping だ (da) from 好きだ (suki da) makes the expression much less formal; adding 大 (dai) makes it more forceful. It is the equivalent of "very."

Basic forms:

「私は」[あなたが] (大) 好き {だ} -「watashi ha」[anata ga] (dai) suki {da}

「私は」[あなたを] 愛している -「watashi ha」[anata wo] ai shite iru

Polite forms:

「私は」[あなたが] (大) 好きです -「watashi ha」[anata ga] (dai) suki desu

「私は」[あなたを] 愛しています -「watashi ha」[anata wo] ai shite imasu

What is the word 'honest' when translated from English to Japanese?

素直な (su na o na) is Japanese for 'honest' meaning 'frank, outright' (in adjective form). 誠実な (sei ji tsu na) is Japanese for 'honest' meaning 'sincere, truthful'. 素顔な (su ga o na) also can be used for 'honest' meaning literally 'with an unmasked face, wholehearted, frank'.

The word 正直 (shoujiki) may also be used.

English to Japanese

Is the Japanese word for Badger Anaguma or Mujina or both?

The word used depends on the area you are in. For example, in Tochigi prefecture they call アナグマ (anaguma), タヌキ (tanuki) and タヌキ, ムジナ (mujina). Thus, there is presented a particularly complex situation over which term is correct. Though in general, アナグマ means badger, タヌキ means raccoon-dog, and 貉・狢 (mujina) is actually a very old term for referring to badgers.

So, in short they are both correct depending on the area you are in, or both incorrect depending on the area you are in.

What does mirai doushite means?

Mirai: future

Doushite: Why

The only way I can see this as even being a usable combination is if there was a question mark after each exclamation.

未来!?!どうして!?!Mirai!?! Doushite!?!

A disagreement as to whether or not to even consider the future is about the only possibility for this awkward combination.

Could someone explain the difference between Kimi wa mamoru and Kimi wo mamoru?

The particle 'WA' is a topic marker, akin to saying "as for (word preceding 'WA'); the particle 'wo' indicates the word before it is a direct object of a verb. Mamoru means 'to protect' or 'to defend'.

君"Kimi" is a way of saying "you", not "I" or "me".

君を守る "kimi WO mamoru" would be "(I) protect you" and

君は守る "kimi WA mamoru" would be "you protect (something)".

This is from a Japanese pop song a few years back.

How do you say grandmaster in Japanese?

there is no Japanese word for grandmaster cuz im a Grandmaster in taekwon-do i also check no word


Taekwondo is Korean, not Japanese, so how would that qualify you...?

Anyway, 達人 (tatsujin) means 'master' or 'expert' in Japanese.

In terms of a martial art, 師範 (Shihan) would mean 'master' and is an honorific that is a high enough level that it can be used interchangeably with 'grandmaster'.

Can you show me the alphabet in Japanese?

There are two alphabets Hiragana and Katakana and then there is Kanji, which is another 1500 or so different characters that a high school graduate is expected to recognize.

Charts of hiragana and katakana are available at many Web sites: searching for "hiragana katakana" will yield dozens.

Hiragana is used for several purposes. The primary use is to write grammatical markers (e.g., past tense markers, conjunctions, and so forth) that cannot be written using Chinese characters (or kanji), the symbols mainly borrowed from Chinese that carry the idea or content of words, in much the way that many English or Romance language words comprise a root from Latin or Greek and grammatic markers associated with particular languages and grammars.

Hiragana is also used in some cases when the Chinese characters are too much trouble or are too obscure to write (e.g., ごみ [English: trash, garbage, etc.], which can be written as 塵). In personal names, hiragana are often used when the connotations of particular kanji that could be used to write a name are not wanted.

Hiragana is historically (e.g., in the Heian era) with women's prose (e.g., "The Tale of Genji").

Katakana comprise a parallel set of sound symbols abstracted from hiragana symbols. Presently, katakana are used most often to designate words of foreign origin or, sometimes, for emphasis (as are italics in English and other alphabet-dominated languages). At least until the end of the Second World War, katakana were also used (at least in official documents) for grammatic markers, hiragana having taken over this role nearly completely in the last 60 or so years.

The Roman alphabet is frequently used as is in Japan, although not for prose or any extended writing. Hence, the Roman alphabet can be encountered on signage or similar forms of communication such as advertisements and product labels.
