Counting Minutes: 分 (fun)

counter for minutes

★ The Japanese counter for minutes is 分 (fun).

★ As we learned in our last lesson, this counter can be used for counting minutes (1 minute, 2 minutes, etc.).

★ However, it can also be used for telling time (12:01, 12:02, etc.)

………………………………………………………………………………..

Example:

3-15

★ For example, 3:15 is 3時15分 (sanji juugofun).

★ 3時 (sanji) is 3:00 (three o’clock) and15分 (juugofun) is ‘fifteen minutes’ so when you put them together, it is the time, 3:15 (three-fifteen).

………………………………………………………………………………..

Example:

3-30

★ 3:30 (three-thirty) in Japanese is: 時30分 (sanji sanjuppun).

★ 3時 (3:00) plus 30分 (30 minutes) is 時30分 (3:30).

………………………………………………………………………………..

Special Expression: Half Past~

half past 3

★ Instead of using 3時30分, you can also use 時半 (sanji han).

★  (han) means ‘half’ so時半 (sanji han) is like the English expression ‘half past three’

★ Of course, the same rule goes for all of the hours. For example: 2時30分 (niji sanjuppun – 2:30) can also be 時半 (niji han – half past two).

……………………………………………………………………………….

Other Important Information:

★ AM (2 AM,  3 AM, etc.) in Japanese is 午前 (gozen)

★ PM (2 PM,  3 PM, etc.) in Japanese is 午後 (gogo)

★ When using 午前 (gozen) and 午後 (gogo), put them BEFORE the time (this is opposite from English). For example, 3 AM would be 午前3時 (gozen sanji).
