How To Say Goodnight in Japanese

good night in japanese

According to Mark Goulston, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute, saying “Goodnight” to your significant other “tells your partner that, regardless of how upset you are with them, you still want to be in the relationship. It says that what you and your partner have is bigger than any single upsetting incident.” He couldn’t be more right and this applies to relationships of all types, including between friends.

Thanks to the brilliant doctor, we now know how important it is to say “Goodnight” to our loved ones. Now, if you happen to have Japanese friends or a Japanese partner or plan to travel or migrate to Japan anytime soon, we suggest that you learn how to say Good Night in Japanese language.

In Japan, people say “Oyasumi (おやすみ)” to wish someone at night when they part ways or before going to bed. Oyasumi meaning in English is “Goodnight”.
