VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese: Check, please!

At many restaurants in Japan, once your food is brought to the table, you will likely receive a check even if you don’t ask for one. However, at izakayas and bars, you may need to ask for one when you are ready to pay.

So, when you would like to receive a check, try this phrase:  

“Okaikei wo onegai shimasu,” which means “Check, please!”

(“Okaikei/kaikei” – accounting, “wo” – a particle to indicate an object, “Onegai shimasu” – please~)

OK, stay safe and see you in the next episode of Speakin’ Japanese.
