Hyaku 100
In the romaji (using Latin letters to spell out the pronunciation) spelling they are as follows a pattern is clearly evident so I will show 1-30 then the multiples of ten until 100(words in parentheses are other ways to say them):
1 - ichi (Sho is also another for of the number 1; however "sho is not used to count is it used to give something a number like saying first =Shodan {corrected by Chip also self taught})
2 - ni
3 - san
4 - yon (or "shi" which is also the word used for death or other morbid things which is why it is not commonly used for the number meaning) (Shi = 4 while yon = 4th you use shi when you say how many of something and yon when you give that something a number like saying it's the fourth apple you would say that the apple is "yondan" {corrected by Chip also self taught})
5 - go
6 - roku
7 - nana (shichi)
8 - hachi
9 - kyu
10 - juu
11 - juichi
12 - juni
13 - jusan
14 - juyon
15 - jugo
16 - juroku
17 - junana
18 - juhachi
19 - jukyu
20 - niju
21 - nijuichi
22 - nijuni
23 - nijusan
24 - nijuyon
25 - nijugo
26 - nijuroku
27 - nijunana
28 - nijuhachi
29 - nijukyu
30 - sanju
40 - yonju
50 - goju
60 - rokuju
70 - nanaju
80 - hachiju
90 - kyuju
100 - hyaku

The highest I am able to count it 9,999,999 and so I will show you all the numbers you need to know to get to one million just as an added bonus (the numbers continue to follow the same pattern of building up to make larger numbers):

101 - hyakuichi
110 - hyakuju

*I forgot to put this in last night when I answered this(was not a member when i answered it but now I am), "chi" can also take the place of one of either "sen" or "hyaku". I'm not adding this into the actual list though, because I can't remember where and its not used to count, or at least not to my knowledge. Also this list is subject to change from anyone who thinks otherwise of my answer since I had to teach myself, however I'm almost 100% certain on these being the numbers to one million. I hope this has answered your query though.{revised by Kittysannihongo} Just so you know the number "juu" is with two "u"s so that the hiragana is really three characters long.

Ni 二
San 三
Shi/Yon 四
