Kiss o Kudasai by Larry Turner According to Charles Berlitz you ask for a kiss in Japanese the same way you ask for anything else: Kiss o Kudasai. It carries the connotation, please descend from your lofty position and grant unworthy me a kiss— or a sandwich or whatever. Will I have occasion to use this phrase? Not that I’d mind kissing a Japanese girl, but their use of the English word “kiss” makes me uneasy, suggests that kisses. like forks and pineapples are foreign to Japanese tradition. But even in America I don’t recall ever asking for a kiss. In my experience, kisses, like after dinner mints in restaurants, are either there for the taking or they’re not.
