This page contains the Japanese phrase: Please leave a message.
This phrase is mainly out of curiosity if anything else. I don’t think you’ll ever have to use this unless you really want to impress your friends. After learning these words, however, you’ll hear them a lot if you make a lot of phone calls in Japan. Knowing what is said will help you learn the vocabulary when you hear it repeated all the time. Other useful telephone expressions are: I’ll call you back, Call me back, and Answering the phone.
