Number Kanji


NumberKanji (for iTouch or iPhone 2.2.1 and above) is a quick-reference guide to many commonly used Japanese counters. The app also lists numbers and time & date expressions.

In Japanese the reading of a particular counter varies according to quantity. For example, the counter for cups or glasses is hai, but this can be read as bai or pai :

1 glass : ippai
2 glasses : ni-hai
3 glasses : san-bai

Number Kanji lists the readings (in romaji and hiragana) for quantities 1 to 10 of each counter. The irregular readings are highlighted in blue.
