Days of the Month

The 1st through the 10th of the month have special names:
First day of the month
1日 (tsuitachi)
Second day of the month
2日 (futsuka)

Third day of the month
3日 (mikka)
Fourth day of the month
4日 (yokka)
Fifth day of the month
5日 (itsuka)

Sixth day of the month
6日 (muika)
Seventh day of the month
7日 (nanoka)
Eighth day of the month
8日 (yōka)

Ninth day of the month
9日 (kokonoka)
Tenth day of the month
10日 (tōka)

The other days of the month are more orderly, just add the suffix -nichi to the ordinal number. Note that 14, 20, and 24 deviate from this pattern.

Eleventh day of the month
11日 (jūichinichi)
Fourteenth day of the month
14日 (jūyokka)
Twentieth day of the month
20日 (hatsuka)

Twenty-fourth day of the month
24日 (nijūyokka)

Writing time and date

Dates are written in year/month/day (day of week) format, with markers:

2006年3月21日(火)

Note that Imperial era years, based on the name and duration of the current Emperor's reign, are also frequently used. 2006 in the Gregorian calendar corresponds to Heisei 18 (平成18年), which may be abbreviated as "H18". Dates like "18/03/24" (March 24, Heisei 18) are also occasionally seen.
