Thank you for checking out the Top Japanese Last Names Quiz. Now, let’s take a look at the answers:
The top three Japanese last names here in east Japan (Ibaraki) anyway, the ones that I heard from all 20 surveyed were:
Did you guess those three. I know I didn’t. I was thinking maybe Honda, Yamada, and Tanaka but when nearly every Japanese respondent gives the EXACT same, I guess it has to be more than a coincidence.
P.S.-Oh yeah, I don’t want to forget about he English names. When I saw the names I though, “yeah, that makes sense. Based on an old census report, the top three were Smith, Johnson, and Williams. I don’t know what the current census says, but if it’s changed I I’m fairly certain these names will still be in the top five.
