Counting Chocolate in Japanese

Learn how to count in Japanese with Chocolate

In Japanese, we use different counters to count objects, people, animals, or events. Even chocolate.

Imagine all of the different types of chocolate:

・Pocky-type stick chocolate
・chocolate-covered peanuts
・chocolate thins
・truffles

Counters for objects often depend on the size and form (i.e. thick/thin, round/flat), so these four types of chocolate are counted differently. This also means that any object with a similar shape or form as these four are counted the same way.

Press play to learn the different counters along with sample phrases. Listen to how the numbers change as well.
