How do you say “What day is today?” in Japanese?
Today’s phrase is :
What day is today?
kyou nanyoubi* dakke
If you want to ask politely, you can say :
kyou nanyoubi* deshitakke
*We do not clearly pronounce the vowels in the middle and at the end of a word. We pronounce “kyou” like “kyō”, “you” like “yō”.
- what day ＝ 何曜日 nanyoubi
- is today ＝ 今日は** kyouwa
**We often omit “は (wa)” in everyday conversation.
