日本の方ですか?

English Translation

Are you Japanese?

The transcript says 日本【にっぽん】の方【かた】ですか?, but 【にほん】(Nihon) as the TTS audio pronounces is the correct one in this particular context.

Don’t try to replace 日本の方 with 日本の人(ひと). The altered phrase sounds rude.

Funny you mention that because I had just thought how they would be interchangeable. Saved me some future 平手打ち there…
