Romaji: Aitai

Hiragana:あいたい

Katakana:アイタイ

Kanji: 会いたい (Aitai), 逢いたい (Aitai)

The auxiliary verb “Tai(たい)” is added to “Ai(会い)”, which is the continuous form of the verb “Au(会う)”.”Aitai” is the closest expression to “I miss you” in English.

“会いたい” and “逢いたい” are pronounced the same and have almost the same meaning. “逢いたい” is used when you want to see a person who has been separated from you again. “会” is an everyday kanji, but “逢” is not a daily kanji.

Most of the time, we use the kanji for “会いたい.” However, when writing “逢いたい,” it is often used intentionally in letters or lyrics.
