How to Get Somebody's Phone Number in Japanese

A Japanese Pay Phone
 Let's say, you are in Japan, and you meet a new friend and want to get their phone number. Before we learn the phrase, we must first understand that they will not be telling us their phone number, they will be instead teaching us their phone number.

The phrase for, "please tell me your phone number" in Japanese is -

電話 番号 を 教えて 下さい
denwa bango o oshiete kudasai - please teach me your phone number.

The keyword here is oshieru or the verb to teach.

Towards Better Japanese
