I love you in Japanese
In Japanese 好き suki = I like you. Correctly “好き” will be “わたしは あなたを 好きです。watashi wa anata wo suki desu.” but, in this case, the subject and the object are clear, and we just say “suki” or “kirai”. Aishiteru 愛してる is the best phrase to say “I love you” in Japanese. Daisuki 大好き is similar with Aishiteru.
|愛してる||aishiteru||I love you.|
|大好き||daisuki||I love you.|
I like you so much.
|好き||suki||I like you.|
|好きじゃない||sukijanai||I don’t like you.|
