Different Ways On How To Say Yes In Japanese

When you learn (or try) to learn a new language, the first few words or sentences taught to you are usually “Yes”, “No”, and “How are you?”

Why is that? Well, for starters, “How are you?” is usually the first question we ask when we see or meet up with people. “Yes” and “No” can be used to answer any and many questions, so we tend to learn them first. However, there are many different ways to say “Yes” and “No,” as some can be formal, while some informal.

In this article, let’s expand our vocabulary skills and learn the different ways to say “Yes” in Japanese, plus how to say “Okay” in Japanese along with some other affirmative words.
