List of N4 and N5 adjectives in Japanese

WRITTEN BY

Golden Week Week has started! An event full of free Japanese classes! Click here and watch now!

In today's article I want to share a list of adjectives in Japanese that we learned in JLPT of N4 and N5. Japanese adjectives are called Keiyoushi [形容詞]. The list is separated into adjectives of type [な] and type [い].

Adjectives i [い] have this name because they end with the letter [い]. Already adjectives of the type at [な] are because they need the particle at [な] to become adjectives. It can often be a noun becoming an adjective.

Japanese adjectives are very simple to learn, as they have no female or male gender division. A single adjective in Japanese can be used by both.

Before the list, the video below can exemplify a little more about adjectives of the type [い] and [な].

We recommend that you also read our other articles that talk about adjectives:
