When exactly do we use うれしい(ureshii) and たのしい(tanoshii)
Ureshii - glad , pleasant
Tanoshii - happy

Ureshii is when you see someone being happy
Is ureshii also with event already happened


Ureshii means "happy". As in, "I'm happy I won the lottery." Or in a different nuance, ureshii taiken, a "grateful experience", one you're happy to have had. Tanoshii means "fun". "That party was fun." Or, "I like to hang with fun people."
