Learn Japanese using JLPT syllabus

Home | Japanese words | JLPT Level N5 Vocabulary


We have grouped a small set of 12 Japanese kotoba that indicate name of months

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

This is a super easy milestone to cross if you know how to say Numbers from 1 to 12 in Japanese. If you do not know, learn Numbers first. Once you know them, all you have to do is, add "gatsu" to numbers 1 to 12 in Japanese language. That's it. Unlike other languages, in Japanese language, calendar months are not represented by specific names like January to December, they are just Month 1 to Month 12.
