Japanese 178 - Near, Next to, and Between

You've already learned several ways to describe the relative position of things in Japanese. In this lesson we will expand that vocabulary to include ちか, meaning near, となり, meaning next to, and あいだ, meaning between.

To say that A is near or next to B, we use the pattern AはBのXです, with X being ちか or となり respectively.

To say that A is between B and C, we use the pattern AはBとCのあいだです.

Below are some example sentences using these words in context.
