"Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine. Not that I wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job. No-one is more deserving of a rest. And all the effort in the world would have gone to waste until... well, let's just say your hour has come again. The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world. So, wake up, Mr. Freeman. Wake up and smell the ashes." - G-Man in Half-Life 2

Telling Time

Telling time in Japanese isn't that hard, in fact it's easier than English (my opinion).

First you will get some simple explanation to what you will encounter.
-ji - O'clock
-fun, -pun - Minute
han - Half
ima - Now
nani-ji - What time
gozen - A.M.
gogo - P.M.
Ima nan-ji desu ka? - What time is it now?

Here is the actual time telling part.
