How to Say “That’s enough!” in Japanese

How do you say “That’s enough!” in Japanese?

Today’s phrase is :

That’s enough!


 mou iiyo*

If you want to speak politely, you can say :


 mou iidesu*

We pronounce “mou iiyo” like “mō īyo” and “mou iidesu” like “mō īdesu”.

  • that’s = それは sorewa
  • enough = もういいです mou iidesu

We do not usually say “それは” in this case. We just simply say “もういいよ” or “もういいです”.

それは もういいです
that’s enough
