Hi Pascalさん,

In Japanese there's no actual word to mean "it." As you have correctly pointed it out, it depends on the situation and context.
For example if someone just bought a brand new bag they might say something like this:
E.g. 最近買ったの。きれいでしょ?
= I just bought it. It's very pretty, right?

Hope this helped!
i,am,she and it
