How to Say Bye in Japanese
Bye in Japanese is an informal way to say “goodbye.” The more formal version is “oPi reYang deshita” or “goodbye”. In both formal and informal contexts, you can say bye with both of these words.

When saying “bye” in Japanese, you should first learn the words irasshaimasu (good morning) and otsukaresama desu (good night). If you are saying “goodnight” to someone, you should use oyasumi. This formal way is used when you are about to leave or visit. When you are saying “oyasumi” to someone, you can add the word ‘tsukare’ or ‘oya-sama’ to avoid ambiguity.
Another way to say “bye” is to thank someone for their service. Japanese people often work long hours. Westerners rush to the exit when they have finished their work. Instead, they excuse themselves to the door. The Japanese use the phrase “oXian ni” to say, “excuse me for leaving first.”
