For those who would like to order Japanese numbers anyway
(for instance when you want to order more than just one beer),
here’s a list of so-called ‘counters’.
Depending on what you are counting, the number changes,
but the ones listed here are for ‘miscellaneous’ items.
4 yohttsu (be careful to pronounce the ‘o’ short, otherwise you’re saying ‘eight’)
8 yoohtsu (be careful to pronounce the ‘o’ long, otherwise you’re saying ‘four’)
