As It Is

A useful expression in English is “As it is”(そのままで).

There are many ways to say そのままで。

For example when I go to the convenient store and buy a rice ball(おにぎり), they ask me if I would like to have it warmed up.  I say “そのままでいいです”  (As it is, is okay) or I can say (Like that is okay), or (That way is okay) or just say (this is okay).

The meaning is that I like the condition/way/place that the object is now.  So basically it means “don’t change it”.

Or if you don’t want someone to move something you can say “you can leave it there”(そのままでいい).

The most  common expression that I use for そのままでいい is “like that is fine”.
