Native Japanese numerals (used for counting objects up to 10):

1. Hitotsu
2. Futatsu
3. Mittsu
4. Yottsu
5. Itsutsu
6. Muttsu
7. Nanatsu
8. Yattsu
9. Kokonotsu
10. Tou

The counting system in Japan is complicated and irregular. Often the Sino-Japanese system (ichi, ni, san...) is used along with a "counter." For instance, the names of the months are ichigatsu (January), nigatsu (February), sangatsu (March), etc.

But the Sino-Japanese numbers can never be used alone to count objects, while the Japanese ones can. If you're at a market, want three apples, and can't remember the right counter, don't say "ringo san," say "ringo mittsu."

There are two different readings for Taiwanese, literary and colloquial. 7 only has one though.

Literary:
1. It (the t is extremely short)
2. Ji/Gi/Li (different accents)
3. Sam
4. Su
5. Ngo/Go (different accents)
6. Liok
7. Chit
8. Pat
9. Kiu
10. Sip

Colloquial
1. Tsit
2. Nng
3. Sann
4. Si
5. Go
6. Lak
7. Chit
8. Peh/Pueh (different accents)
9. Kau
10. Tsap

They sound nothing like these roman letters but I can't type the tones and those "accents" like aigu or trema etc.
So yeah it's a total mess but you get used to it when you hear it more.

^I think the Japanese system is probably the same, like there are two different sets of numerals.

じゅう is from Chinese. とう is native.

I know that. However, Japanese native speaker told me that とう is not commonly used, so they use the Chinese number instead
