Possible Answer

From the previous article, we can answer the questions and informing the time when the subject go or went to a location by using particle (ni). But there is a rule on using the particle itself on informing time of the subject go or went to a location. The time has to be specific and it is not a general time marker.

The first example is displaying about how to use particle on informing specific time when an activity is done.

Kanji    : 夕べ10時に会社から帰りました。

Hiragana : ゆうべ10時にかいしゃからかえりました。

Romaji   : Yuube 10ji ni kaisha kara kaerimashita.

Meaning  : I came back from the office at 10 o’clock last night.

The specific time is 10 o’clock last night of in the sentence above :

The second example is displaying about how to inform the time of an activity is done especially when the time is not specifically given in detailed.

Kanji    : 今朝朝御飯を食べました。

Hiragana : けさあさごはんをたべました。

Romaji   : Kesa asa gohan wo tabemashita.

Meaning  : This morning (I) ate breakfast.

The time marker which is given in the above sentence is a general time marker without any detailed or specific about the exact time. けさ means this morning and is a general time marker. It is not necessary to be followed with particle .
