I will be starting my internship in a Japanese company. I want to leave a good impression on my Japanese supervisor and colleagues and am thinking of saying “nice to meet you” in Japanese. How do I say it in Japanese?

Nice to meet you.

Congratulations on starting your internship at a Japanese company. Leaving a good impression at the start will certainly pave the way for a smooth internship. The above phrase is usually said when you meet someone for the first time. The literal meaning is “please take care of me”.

You can also say this phrase at a project kick-off meeting if you are starting one with a new group even though you already know your group members. This is because it is the first time you are working with the group and you wish for everyone to take care of you.
