Now…

If you already know how to say 1 to 10 in Japanese, it will be very easy.

One hundred or hundreds is„Hyaku”and "thousands" is "sen" In japanese.

These are the only two things you need to remember and follow the rules below:

**Rule:**Add the number (1-9) from our previous lesson to Hyaku.**Format:***(any number from 1 to 9) + Hyaku***Examples:**400º Yon Hyaku, 700º Nana Hyaku

Number | romaji/english | hiragana | Kanji |

100 | Hyaku | Hyaku | Hundreds |

200 | Ni Hyaku | two hundred | two hundred |

300 | san byaku | three hundred | three hundred |

400 | yon hyaku | four hundred | four hundred |

500 | Geh Hyaku | Five hundred | five hundred |

600 | ro pyaku | Roppyaku | sechshundert |

700 | nana hyaku | Seven hundred | seven hundred |

800 | There is my Ppy | Eight hundred | Eight hundred |

900 | kyu hyaku | Kyuuhyaku | nine hundred |

1000 | sen | Plug | mil |

Hang on! If you're smart enough, you might have noticed that there are some numbers that aren't "Hyaku." They use the same kanji but have different sounds: "byaku" and "ppyaku". So there are some exceptions to keep in mind.

The numbers used by these tones are 300, 600 and 800.

**300 becomes St. John's****600 torna-se ro ppyaku - ro vem do número 6 roku****800 becomes ha ppyaku - ha comes from number 8 hachi**

These are the only extra things you need to remember when counting to a thousand in Japanese.

**Counting from 101 to 999**

Now that you know the basic hundreds, let's try counting the numbers in between. This is easy if you know how to count from 10 to 100. Just follow this rule.

**Rule:**Add any number of (1-9) with Hyaku, then add any number of (1-9) with Juu, then add any number of (1-9).**Format:***((any number from 100 to 900) + hyaku) + ((any number from 1-9) + juu) + (any number from 1-9)***Examples:**111 é Hyaku Juu Ichi e 368 é San Byaku Roku Juu Hachi

**Part 2: How to count from 1,000 to 10,000 in Japanese**

Are you ready to count to a thousand in Japanese? Yes?

Intestine.

Counting from 1,000 to 10,000 gets a little longer, but just as easy as what you learned in Part 1. Just follow this rule to count thousands in Japanese.

**Rule:**Add the number (1-9) to sin. It's exactly the same rule as in part 1, but instead of a hundred or hyaku, we use a thousand or sen.**Format:***(any number from 1 to 9) + sin***Examples:**4000 is Yon Sen and 9000 is Kyuu Sen.

It was not so hard!

**Here is the complete list of how to count from 1000 to 10000.**

Number | romaji/english | hiragana | Kanji |

1000 | sen | Plug | mil |

2000 | ni sen | Two thousand | two thousand |

3000 | san zen | Sanzen | three thousand |

4000 | a saint | Yonsen | four thousand |

5000 | go sen | He was | five thousand |

6000 | roku sen | six thousand | six thousand |

7000 | nana sen | Nanasen | seven thousand |

8000 | to hate | rabbits | eight times |

9000 | kyu sen | Kyusen | neuntausend |

10000 | meh man | Ichiman | ten thousand |

As you can see, similar to Part 1, there are also some exceptions that stand out.In this case, 3000 becomes san zen instead of sen.

**Counting from 1,001 to 9,999**

This should be easy. Let's see how to count between numbers!

The rules and format are pretty much the same. All you have to do is count from top to bottom or from bigger to smaller digits.

**Rule:**Add a number (1-9) to Sen, followed by any number (1-9) with Hyaku, then any number (1-9) with Juu, and finally followed by any number of (1-9).**Format:***((any number from 1 to 9) + sin)**+ ((any number from 1 to 9) + Hyaku)*+*((any number from 1 to 9) + Juu)*+*(any number from 1 to 9)***Examples:**4.345 ist yon sen san byaku yon juu go e 7.777 ist na na sen na na hyaku na na juu na na

**How to count 10,000**

We also need to take a closer look at this number as the count changes.

In English, 1,000 and 10,000 are still a thousand, but in Japanese you start counting at 10,000 in "man", or the direct translation would be "million".

This can be a little confusing at first, but trust me, it's just a matter of getting used to it. One trick I remember using is associating "man" and 10,000 as the highest Japanese yen bill. So you can always remember that it's time to say "dude" when it's the highest note.

Now you can count over a thousand in Japanese.

You are more than halfway done!

Let's get straight to the last segment so you can get ready to tell a lot!

**Part 3: How to count from 100,000 to 1 million in Japanese**

Almost there. You are at the end of this lesson, Counting to 1 Million in Japanese.

This will be as easy as the previous parts. The same rules apply, just longer.

**Rule:**Add the number (10-100) to man, then add the number (1-9) to sen, followed by any number (1-9) with hyaku, then any number (1-9) with juu, and finally followed by by any number (1-9).**Format:***((any number from 10 to 100) + man)*+*((any number from 1 to 9) + sin)**+ ((any number from 1 to 9) + Hyaku)*+*((any number from 1 to 9) + Juu)*+*(any number from 1 to 9)***Examples:**789.600 ist na na juu hachi man kyuu sen ro ppyaku e 1.234.546 ist hyaku ni juu san man yon sen go hyaku yon juu roku

Check out the list below to count from 100,000 to 1,000,000 for easier reference.

Number | romaji/english | hiragana | Kanji |

100.000 | in the man | complete | hundred thousand |

200.000 | It's time, man | Nijyuman | two hundred thousand |

300.000 | san up man | Congratulations | three hundred thousand |

400.000 | a juu man | Yonjuman | Four hundred thousand |

500.000 | go to the man | rice cake | five hundred thousand |

600.000 | year juu man | Rokujuman | Sechshunderttausend |

700.000 | look man | Nanajuman | 700.000 |

800.000 | hachi juu man | Hachiman | round of 16 |

900.000 | Kyuu, Mann | Kyujuman | 900.000 |

1.000.000 | Hyaku-Mann | Hyakuman | Million |

**Counting from 100,001 to 999,999**

You're almost done! Let's count the intermediate numbers. As long as you follow the rules in the previous parts, you'll be fine!

**Rule:**Add the number (10-99) to man, followed by any number (1-9) with sen, then any number (1-9) with hyaku, followed by any number (1-9) with juu, and finally any number number (1-9).**Format:***((any number from 10 to 99) + man)**+ ((any number from 1 to 9) + sin)*+*((any number from 1 to 9) + Hyaku)*+*((any number from 1 to 9) + Juu)*+*(any number from 1 to 9).***Examples:**876.900 ist hachi juu nana man roku sen kyuu hyaku e 608.009 ist roku juu man hassen kyuu.

**Now you know how to count up to a million in Japanese.**This completes your counting lesson from 100 to 1 million. It wasn't as hard as you thought! Now that you know how to count big numbers, let's try to see how we can use them in conversations.

**How much does this item cost?**

- How much does this item cost?

**This item costs 1,999 yen.**

- Kochira no aitemu wa sen kyuu hyaku kyuu juu kyuu en ni narimasu.
