Have you ever wanted to know what to call you fingers in Japanese? Well, here’s a list including the English name, Japanese name, and literal translation.

1. thumb: 親指(おやゆび)”parent finger”
2. pointer/index/forefinger: 人差し指(ひとさしゆび) “people pointing finger”
3. middle finger: 中指(なかゆび)”middle finger”
4. ring finger: 薬指(くすりゆび) “medicine finger”
5. pinky: 小指(こゆび)”little finger”

It’s interesting to note how pointer finger and middle finger are about the same in both languages.
