⭐✅ Check ❰HERE❱ the list of the 1000 Japanese surnames with meaning and the 210 most common Japanese surnames.

One thing you should know is that common people (commoners) did not start using Japanese surnames until the Meiji era, roughly between 1868 and 1912, as it was reserved for the royalty of the imperial palace or Japanese clans.

Where Japanese surnames could be found most would be in some warriors or samurai, some monks, and merchants (the latter only to identify themselves and be able to sell).

Most common Japanese surnames

Among the most common and popular Japanese surnames in Japan are Sato (佐藤 Satō), Kato (加藤 Katō), Suzuki (鈴木) and Takahashi (高橋). According to estimates, there are about 100 000 different surnames in use in Japan today.

The frequency of use of surnames differs from area to area, which we will show you below; For example, in Okinawa the surnames Higa (比嘉), Tamagusuku (玉城), Shimabukuro (島袋), and Uchima (内間) are common, which is not the case in other parts of Japan, with this we mean that each area has certain surnames and more if they are rural areas or little crowded by other Japanese, so if there is not much mixing of surnames are preserved those of yesteryear more often.

Several Japanese surnames come from properties in the rural landscape; exemplifying Ishikawa (石川) means “stony river or stone in the river”, Yamamoto (山本) means “the base of the mountain” and Inoue (井上) means “over the well”.

Note: Clarification of Fuji and Glycine, you will notice when we put that the kanji means Glycine and then you see that the surname does not say anything about Glycine but the word Fuji is repeated, that is because the glycine is pronounced Fuji in Japanese.

Note 2: We will put where they come from according to their meaning in extensive mode at the bottom but the first 100 or so because it is already too long an article, if you want to know what they mean we will put the meaning of the Japanese surnames in the table, anyway we will be updating little by little.

How many surnames do Japanese people have?

In Japan, according to tradition, it is normal to have only one surname. This surname will be the family name, not like some of us who get the surname depending on which part of the family has us, Japanese surnames are kept throughout the generations.

When Japanese people get married, they usually adopt the husband’s surname, losing their own in the eyes of the law, this is not obligatory, and the husband can adopt the wife’s surname.

When they introduce themselves formally, the first thing you will hear is a surname followed by the first name, because as a general rule this is how they introduce themselves, and this does not only happen in Japan, their neighbors China and Korea also do it, followed by other Asian countries such as Vietnam and Thailand among others.

But when referring to them, do not call them by their first name, but by their last name (e.g. Takashi San). After the name you can use titles like -san (さん san), like “sir” or “madam”, or -sensei (先生 sensei), like “doctor” or “teacher”, among many others.
