How to Say “There’s a lot of traffic.” in Japanese

How do you say “There’s a lot of traffic.” in Japanese?

Today’s phrase is :

There’s a lot of traffic.


 juutai* shiterune

If you want to speak politely, you can say :


 juutai* shitemasune

*We pronounce “juutai” like “jūtai”.

  • There is … = … がある … ga aru
  • a lot of traffic = 渋滞 juutai

The literal translation of “There’s a lot of traffic.” is “渋滞がある juutaiga aru”, but that sounds unnatural. It sounds more natural to say “渋滞してるね” or “渋滞してますね”.
