Asobi - Part 1/5

Payment patterns I noticed when going out to eat/drink with Japanese

One of the patterns is where each one will pay Only for the contents of one's own tray When it's time for the kaikei* you simply utter Warikan** onegaishimasu*** to the worker


*Kaikei(会計)= bill **Warikan(割り勘)= dutch treat, split the bill ***Onegaishimasu(お願いします)= please

※Asobi(遊び)= to play (based on experience, this term is mostly used to refer to hanging out or going out with friends or colleagues)
