Locational Markers へ, に, で
へ and に as destination markers

The two particles へ and に are interchangeable particles used when referring to something moving from one location to another. In these cases, the へ is pronounced as え. When used subsequent to interrogatives such as どこ(doko) and どこか (dokoka), these particles are not dropped.

Example(s):

家(へ/に)帰ります。
Uchi (e/ni) kaerimasu .
I am going home.

明日、どこか(へ/に)行くつもりですか?
Ashita, doko ka (e/ni) iku tsumori desuka?
Do you plan to go anywhere tomorrow?
