Make use of Google’s camera instant translator. I use this almost every day, in supermarkets restaurants Or on the street. Without this you are lost here A great addition to that is Google’s voice translator. Oh boy, you look horrible today, rough night yesterday Now if you’re planning to travel around Japan You should have a look into the Japan Railway pass. They have different offers and it’s much cheaper than buying a normal train ticket Since you’re in a foreign country, you also want to get to know some locals, right? The easiest way to do so is to have a look at meetup.com There’s dozens of local groups and events almost every day. A lot of Japanese people go there. They want to hang out with foreigners and practice their English. That’s it, now you’re all set Happy journey.
