When I visit restaurants in foreign country, I like to use this phrase, “Check please!” This phrase contains cool factor in short and simple words (I think). Interestingly, the same thing happens with the same meaning phrase in Japanese.
You surely would hear “Oaiso” if you visit sushi restaurant in Japan. “Oaiso” or “Oaisou” is the same meaning as “Check” in English. When you finish eating in a restaurant and want to pay, you can say “Oaiso”. “Oaiso” is written as “おあいそ” in Hiragana and “お愛想” in Kanji. “Oaiso-Onegaishimasu” is more polite expression.
“Oaiso” has a meaning of “I am sorry unamiable” in restaurant situation fundamentally when a staff gives a check to customers. Therefore, if a customer says “Oaiso!” it means “I am disgusted at this restaurant, so adjust my account soon.”
Now, “Oaiso” doesn’t contain the above meaning. People in Japan use the words when they just want to pay money in restaurants. Try “Oaiso!” if you visit Japanese restaurant or Japan.
