How can I say I love you in Japanese How to learn 1000 kanji in 2 month Do you say good morrning in japanese in true way When we learn a new language, the first things we grasp are greetings. It’s very important to learn how to greet in any language. If you are just visiting Japan for a short period of time, it would be sufficient to know how to greet in morning, afternoon or evening. In this post, I will show you some ways to good evening in japanese. Let's find out. 1. Good evening in japanese by saying こんばんは (konbanwa) In Japanese, the conversation or greeting will generally start with こんにちは (konnichiwa) or "hello." In the evening, you would say, こんばんは (konbanwa). It’s meaning "Good evening,". Different from the way to say good morning, which is separated to 2 case おはようございます (ohayo gozaimasu) ( formal way, use to greeting with your senior) and おはよう(ohayo) ( informal, you only use it to talking to someone you are closer to like a friend or family member). You can say “konbanwa” with any people with all sex, all age range, all walk of life. So easy, right ? And If you are having an informal conversation it is polite to follow your greeting with a question such as お元気ですか"Ogenki desu ka?" ("Are you well?"). If you are asked this question and your health is good reply with, はい、元気です (Hai, genki desu.)-"Yes I am well.". or you are in poor health, you can say 調度が悪いchoudo ga warui desu." ("I am feeling not good.") Remember that you should always address a person as Mr. or Mrs. This is done by adding word San to the surname. Example you can say こんばんは 里さん（konbanwa Sato san ), こんばんは さくらさん (konbanwa Sakura san)。This is not done with children. Women call each other by their name if they are friends, co-workers or at the informal meetings. Men do it only if their relation is personal or in informal situation. As result of western influence young people or generally people in cities also use handshake or which is more common combine it with a bow. Never offer a handshake. Wait for the other person to offer it. 2. Good evening in japanese by taking a bow As you know in Japan, people greet each other by bowing. You are able to good evening by taking a blow or say “konbanwa”- こんばんは while taking a bow. A bow can ranges from a small nod of the head to a deep bend at the waist. According to the angle the body makes there are three types of bowing – “eshaku” or greeting bowing – 5 degrees, “futsuu rei” or respect bowing – 30 degrees and “saikei rei” or highest respect bowing – 45 degrees. A deeper, longer bow indicates respect and conversely a small nod with the head is casual and informal. The bow should last for some two seconds. Let's imagine the situation when you meet someone several times a day. You should bow every time you meet the person. When you are attending some informal meeting a nod or lifted either hand will do just fine. It has to be said that there is no physical contact between you and the person you are greeting. There are many ways to good evening in japanese. You can use any way as long as expressing respect to the one you want to greet.
