I have been wondering how to say you’re welcome in Japanese.I have looked it up and tried asking other people, but nothing helped…
Very simple, it’s どういたしまして = dou itashimashite
It is a bit of a mouth full, but worth remembering.
Or if you can’t get your tongue around it then a simple “It was nothing” is いいえ – iie – which literally just means “no”. But make sure you stretch out the first いいいいいいいい sound and wave your hands about to mean “No, no, it was nothing at all”
Thanks for the question.
(Now how do you answer that?)
