So I'm a Japanese learner just coming across how to count stuff like cars, or buildings, or bottles, or anything!

But I was just wondering, is there any counter to count numbers?

For example, you could say

There are 12 numbers on the board.

So what can I use to count "numbers" & say the same sentence in Japanese?

1 Answer 1


Use the generic counter 個.


If the count is limited, you can also use ひとつ, ふたつ, みっつ and so on.
