How would you say "close relationship" in Japanese Close relationship as in family, friends, and boyfriend or girlfriend. For example: I have a close relationship with my mom. My mom and I are very close. My siblings and I are close in age. Close can also mean近く

There are a few words and phrases that you might be able to use. I'll show them to you in order of intimacy. In Japanese, the word "close" when referring to the relationship between two people or a group of people, it doesn't use the same word "close" that refers to the distance between two objects or people. Therefore it can't be directly translated. Here are 3 phrases I think might be useful: 良い関係がある (いいかんけい) - to have a good relationship Ex: お母さんと良い関係があります。 "I have a good relationship with my mother." 仲良い/仲が良い (なかよい/なかがいい)- close, friendly, on good terms Ex: 彼とトムは仲が良いですね。 "He and tom get along well, don't they." 親しい (したしい) -close, intimate Ex: 彼はいつもお父さんのところにいるほど親しいです。 "He is so close with his father that he's always in the same place his father is." These are all different ways you can express the closeness of a relationship. I hope these help. If you have more questions, let me know.
