This is a more formal version. Gozaimasu is a common suffix in Japanese used to indicate a high degree of politeness and respect. Since this form is more polite, you’ll often hear it in Japan in places such as schools, stores, workplaces, etc.
“Gozaimasu” is the polite form of the verb “gozaru”. “Gozaru” is an older way of saying “to be”, very similar to the verb “aru”. The most common use you likely hear is “arigatou gozaimasu” meaning “to be thankful”.
“Gozaimasu” is a very flowery and polite way of saying “is”. It’s the polite “-masu” form of the polite verb “gozaru”. And “o-” is a polite prefix and “hayou” is an otherwise archaic conjugation of “hayai” (“early”) that is used with “gozaru” – cf. arigatou” from “arigatai” (grateful).
gozaimasu is present and future tense, gozaimashita is past tense.
Generally, the Japanese expression for saying “goodnight” is “おやすみ“(Oyasumi). However, it may be inappropriate to use it sometimes depending on the situation.
Konnichiwa Means Good Afternoon in Japanese.
goodnightGenerally, the Japanese expression for saying “goodnight” is “おやすみ“(Oyasumi).
Unless you are very close with him/her, do not use “おやすみ(oyasumi)” to someone superior to you as it may be considered as impolite. Use the more formal form: “おやすみなさい” instead.
good afternoonA Popular Japanese Greeting If you want to greet someone in Japanese by saying “good afternoon” or “good day,” the word you want to use is Konnichiwa. Konnichiwa is actually a shortened version of a full greeting. Over time, a more slang version of the term evolved in the Japanese language.
Chan (ちゃん) expresses that the speaker finds a person endearing. In general, -chan is used for young children, close friends, babies, grandparents and sometimes female adolescents. It may also be used towards cute animals, lovers, or a youthful woman. Chan is not usually used for strangers or people one has just met.
Yasumi (written: 安見, 保見 or やすみ in hiragana) is a Japanese surname. Notable people with the surname include: Kohei Yasumi (born 1978), Japanese mixed martial artist. Yasumi Naomasa (安見 直政, died 1572), Japanese samurai. Rie Yasumi (やすみ りえ, born 1972), Japanese poet and writer.
As a rule of thumb, in Japanese business life, the surname name is always followed by the honorific suffix “san” (meaning “dear” or actually “honorable Mr/Ms.”). There are of course many other options such as “sama” (highly revered customer or company manager) or “sensei” (Dr. or professor).
