To make a time of day combine the hour from above with the minute.

Examples:

yoji sanjunifun - 4:32
goji gojuuhappun - 5:58

One can also use the term han for half past the hour. Han literally means half.

Example:

hachiji han - 8:30

To distinguish between A.M. and P.M. use the terms gozen and gogo. A.M. is gozen and P.M. is gogo. Note that gozen and gogo should appearbefore the time, not after.

Examples:

gogo sanji - 3 P.M.
gozen niji juuippun - 2:11 A.M.

To ask what time it is now, the phrase Ima, nanji desu ka. can be used.
