ONEGAI SHIMASU. Please

Do you know a useful phrase to ask someone to do something for you?

No I don't. How should I say it?

To ask someone to do something for you, add ONEGAI SHIMASU at the end.

For example, in a taxi, instead of saying "please take me to" a particular place, just put ONEGAI SHIMASU after the destination.

Japanese people also use ONEGAI SHIMASU as a kind of greeting.

So ONEGAI SHIMASU is a helpful phrase to remember. You can use it to ask someone to do something for you, or as a greeting.

Kappabashi is an area filled with more than 170 wholesale kitchenware shops. 

Tourists are drawn to the realistic-looking food replicas. They make great souvenirs.

If you want someone's help, everything goes smoothly with ONEGAI SHIMASU.
