English term or phrase: Hello
I want to be able to greet someone with a hello.
Susan
Japanese translation:konnichiwa
Explanation:
This means "good afternoon". There is no
Japanese greeting corresponding to the
English "Hello".

In the morning, you'll have to say
"Ohayo gozaimasu",which means "good
morning".

In the evening, it is "kombanwa", which
is "Good Evening".

Hope this helps.
