Hi! I'm new here. I've been studying Japanese for several years now, I can speak -somewhat- intelligible Japanese sentences, and I can write hiragana, katakana, and several hundred kanji. I hope to learn a lot more throughout college.
I'm also a big fan of anime, and J-pop ^_^ Ayumi Hamasaki, Morning Musume, etc.
Anyway, I have a question for other Japanese speakers/students here. How do I know when to use "ni" and when to use "e"? (I already know that time expressions take "ni")
For example, when saying "I go to town," is it machi ni ikimasu or machi e ikimasu? Or does it matter? Any help is appreciated.
