I am not sure how often you have to get verbal permission to kiss somebody, but it is good to remember this phrase.
Japanese pronunciation of “Kiss”
‘Kiss’ is ‘キスKisu’ in Japanese which is pronounced ‘Ki-su’ in two syllables. You just need to add a vowel “u”, after ‘kiss’ in English. It’s easy to remember.

“I want to kiss you!”
“キスしたい Kisu-shi-tai” is a conjugated form of the verb ‘キスする Kisu-suru,’ which means ‘to kiss’. If you pronounce it with a plain tone, it means “I want to kiss you”.
How do you say “Do you want to kiss?” in Japanese

“Do you want to kiss?”
How do you say “May I kiss you?” in Japanese
Japanese people are very polite. You may want to ask permission when you want to kiss someone. In Japanese, when asking permission the form is ‘a verb +てもいい? te-mo-i-i’. It is ending with double ‘i’, and ‘i-i’ is pronounced in two syllables (two vowels) or sometimes it sounds like a long vowel like ‘ea’ of ‘seat’.
Grammatically, you need to use the conjugation ‘te-form’ and add ‘mo-i-i’. I am not going to talk complicated grammar here though.
“May I kiss you?”
