Carry Your Private Interpreter Around

"Most people in Japan are not fluent in English, and if they do speak、 it is mostly with a cursory understanding, kind of like an American high school graduate's knowledge of Spanish.

Older people mostly have much poorer English skills than young people. Outside of the busiest areas of Tokyo and Kyoto, you will find that most people will not be as responsive to "Hello" and "Excuse me", and may shy away if they think that you know no Japanese at all." said gotanuki (screen name) from Oakland, Calif. in the tripadviser forum after his first visit to Japan. Apart from a language issue, Japan is a very friendly place for travelers, and everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand. But still, the fact remains that you will face language barrier problems in various situations while you stay in Japan.


What Would You Do If...

1. Most restaurants do not have English menus and waitresses do not speak English.

2. Ticket vending machines at restaurants have no English explanation.

3. You can't easily find the way to your destination when you get lost.  

4. You can't correctly tell a clerk what item you are looking for.

5. You can't tell a policeman when, where, and how you lost your valuable belongings.

6. You can't exactly tell people around about your symptoms when you suddenly get sick, etc, etc..
