I'm hitchhiking around Asia, learning bits of the languages on the road as needed.

I'm now in Kagoshima after over a month in Okinawa.

comment Are ~つ and ~り the only two counters that can occur with the native Japanese numbers (ひと~, ふた~, etc)?
Yes I think true counters would have to be fairly consistently used over more than just one or two set phrases to qualify.

comment How do I say “before” or “used to” in Japanese?
It's complicated in English too! It's colloquial only and people don't agree on whether it should be "didn't used to" or "didn't use to", or different wordings altogether.

comment Counters In Japanese
As well as needing to know which counter to use is it also true that you need to know whether to use the Sino-Japanese or native Japanese numbers? Or are ひと~, ふた~, etc strictly only used with つ?

comment What kind of Japanese is this?
It at least doesn't seem to be modern Chinese since I can't spot the most common character 的, but one of its older equivalents, 之, seems very common. It might be Classical Chinese, which was once the written language of the entire Sinosphere.

comment Which is more colloquial for “I have a headache”?
Thanks for asking @helix because I wondered the same thing. It might even be worth a question all its own, how to know when a given new noun should take shimasu/suru vs arimasu/aru.

Would you use 頭痛 in cases like "I need to buy medicine for my friend's headache"? I think this term appeared on the medicine box, but technical terms are expected there.

comment さまよう vs ぶらつく vs うろつく for the sense of “to wander”?
Great answer thank you! In my case I'm wandering around Asia and currently Japan. When I tried to look up the terms in dictionaries there were negative connotations like "loiter" mentioned in some of them as well as just different ones like "hang around".
