My Japanese book refers to it when talking about airplane seat. But I cannot find any references to the word. Is it the correct spelling?

1 Answer 1


The spelling is correct.
座席(zaseki): seat

    Thanks. That's strange as I also used jisho.org and it gave me the message: Sorry, couldn't find anything matching ザせき, Zaseki or zaseki. I notice now that it's because I typed Zaseki and not zaseki. The former does not work but the latter does.

    And ザせき is a strange mixture of katakana and hiragana, which might have confused jisho.org.

  • @Alan jisho.org interprets capital letters as a request for katakana specifically. It's kind of unhelpful at times, since you get katakana results from hiragana searches anyway. So it saw 'Za' and gave you ザ instead of ざ.
