Short lesson today.
In this lesson we are going to cover the word for “together”.
In English you can say, “I’m going to Tokyo on Sunday. Would you like to come with me?”
To say “come with” or “be with” or “join” in Japanese you use the word together.
The Japanese for together is issho ni.
So, let’s look at the invitation in Japanese:
nichi youbi ni tokyo ni ikimasu. issho ni ikimasenka?
Let’s break that down:
nichi youbi Sunday
ni direction particle
ikimasu to go
issho ni together, with, join with
ikimasenka to go (suggestion)
