I am unable to find an example of a future tense Japanese verb.
No, it's the same as the present, and you must use context to determine it. But then again, English doesn't have a future tense either.– KurausukunOct 27, 2016 at 19:40
I believe that the word will is used for the future tense in most cases– Jack BosmaOct 27, 2016 at 19:42
That's not a tense. Will is a modal verb in English. Time is not the same thing as tense.– KurausukunOct 27, 2016 at 22:06
That's because there isn't a future tense in Japanese. The dictionary form of the verb acts as both present and future. The difference is inferred from context and the surrounding words.
A simple example:
I often eat cake
I will eat cake tomorrow
think of ikimasu. I am going....Oh when are you going? There is no need for future tense. You can use Ima for now if you need to– EscoceFeb 20, 2018 at 16:04
