"It takes nine days."
I wish it read the kanji out especially for dates. There are some special rules with how you pronounce numbers of days! This page has a good section on it: http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/grammar/numbers
Which, in hiragana, is, ここのかかかります。
Say it three times fast. I triple-dog dare you.
I think so. From what I understood, kokonoka was the ninth day of the month. For a period of nine days, I think you read kyuu nichi
The pronunciation of amounts of time and days of the month are the same except the 1st day of the month - いちにち for period of one day and ついたち for the 1st day of month
I think it's frustrating how they put the boxes with 九 and 日 separately making it sound like くにち when it should sound like ここのか. Or ここのか is only for dates and when counting days I should use くにち?
