46. Because II ので

We have looked at a few ‘becauses’ that are prepositions. ので comes at the end of the phrase.

  • In English, we start the phrase with “because”
  • In Japanese, you often say the reason first and then the because.

Just add it after an adjective.

そのかばんは高いので、ずっと使うつもりです。
sono kaban wa takai node, zutto tsukau tsumori desu.
Since that bag was expensive, I plan on using it for a long time.


Just add it to the simple form of any verb

ゴジラが来るので、東京は怖いところです。
gojira ga kuru node, toukyou wa kowai tokoro desu.
Since Godzilla comes, Tokyo is a scary place.


After a noun or a –na adjective add a na before node.

私はまだ学生なので、お金がない。
watashi wa mada gakusei na node, okane ga nai .
Because I am still a student, I don’t have any money.
