|Japanese term or phrase: 2‾3 名様|
|2-3 people, OR party of 2-3 (depends on context)|
"Meisama(名様)" is a polite word used by tour guides, restaurant personnel, etc. to designate a number of people. For example, in the US, when you go into a restaurant with a group of 4 people, the hostess/host might say, "Party of 4?" In Japan it would be ４名様ですか or something to that effect. "Party of 4" would be something more like a restaurant, "2-3 people" is something more generic.
