Noun も〜 (Noun mo~)

Short explanation:

Indicates that the action or state is the same for multiple items or people; 'also', 'as well'.


Noun + も

Toukyou mo oosaka mo kankou supotto ga takusan arimasu.

Long explanation:

The も grammar point is used after a noun to indicate that the action or state is the same for multiple items or people. It essentially means 'also', 'as well', or 'too' in English. も takes the same function as は and が in a sentence, showing that the action or state holds true for the preceding noun as well.
