Counting number of days

We have grouped a small set of 13 JLPT N5 Japanese Kotoba to give example of counting number of days. Except counting for 1 day, others are similar to "Day of a Month"

Note: You must know Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji to learn them.

This is an easy milestone to cross because we just have to add Nichi Kanji (日) to Numbers.

List of JLPT N5 words that are used for counting number of days

Kanji Kana Romaji Meaning
一日 いちにち Ichinichi 1 Day
二日 ふつか Futsuka 2 Days
三日 みっか Mikka 3 Days
四日 よっか Yokka 4 Days
五日 いつか Itsuka 5 Days
六日 むいか Muika 6 Days
七日 なのか Nanoka 7 Days
八日 ようか Youka 8 Days
九日 ここのか Kokonoka 9 Days
十日 とおか Tooka 10 Days
十一日 じゅういちにち Juuichi Nichi 11 Days
十二日 じゅうににち Juuni Nichi 12 Days
二十日 はつか Hatsuka 20 Days

and so on

From 11 days onwards we say 11 in Japanese and "nichi" for day
11 in Japanese is "Juu ichi" and day in Japanese is "nichi"
So 11 days is Juu ichi + nichi = Juu ichi nichi

Exception is for 20 days
20 days is called "Hatsuka"

From 21 onwards, same formula like 11 onwards
For example 21 days is twenty + one + days = ni jyu + ichi + nichi
and so on

Now you have completed learning them. Congrats. This is a "small success" and a step ahead to completing all JLPT Level N5 Vocabulary.
