‘#’ is not ‘sharp’

  • Most Japanese people regard ‘#’ as sharp, and call sharp.

    However, actual sharp is ‘♯.’

    In Japan, the official name of ‘#’ is “igeta,” but this name is not popular.

    By the way, ‘#’ is called pound or number key in the US, and called hash key in the UK.

    I have never say igeta, but sometimes say ‘hash.’
