    ...I was this year in May in Japan. In Tokyo there is a lot lot more English then for example in Kyoto. In Kyoto we couldn't even turn the ticket machines to English...and in the countryside there was no English at all! Haha ... Still one of my best trips and experiences ever ...keen to go again!

    So happy to find your Hilarious site Two signs at Harbor View Park over looking Yokohama Bay I found amusing. "Stop Playing with Fireworks" and "Try not to make a noise". I would recommend anyone needing a real LOL moment to visit the t-shirt section at a Don Quijote store. Amazing stuff they come up with.

    lol This is a generation Y mans to Japanese travel... 1. Have a cell phone at hand fully charge and possibly a powerpack just in case you run out of juice. 2. Install google maps. 3. Get a visual translation app. So that you can read all the bloody sings. 4. Speake into the phone and with another app have your words translated automatically. Hell, you can make it sound like a sexy Japanese lady I heard they are into all sort of kinky things there. 5. Get the dam train card lol that is a must. Bum Japan in your hands...

    Tip for anyone going to Japan from the US-- get your JR passes in the US from a travel agency (yes, they still exist). They'll be considerably cheaper and then you also don't have to wait in a likely long line at the airport to get it and then get it activated. Literally walked up, got mine activated for the specific dates, and then was on my way which was great after the long flight.

    In japan we use vowels and small kana or gana. We don't have an "alphabet" per say and there isn't a kanji alphabet. They are simply symbols, and one symbol can have more than one meaning.
    Ex. 日 could mean Day, Japan, or Sun. You need to know context and use it to understand a sentence. That's why Japanese usually can't translate into English. There are only a generous amount of vowels.

    What would you recommend for a longer term stay? Like for the Olympics, they aren’t providing housing, but we are expected to be there in japan for two to four months. What is the best option? Especially for an American?

    I did not know Japanese or English languages when I began to live and work in Japan, and even I cried about two days because I did not understand their language , I got some courage and decided to take the train to visit some places in the Tokyo area, I still remember that I lived in Setagaya-ku and I traveled with Odakiyu line to Machida station. and was so easy . Japan is really organized country, well prepared to host all foreigners . OMG I miss Kanagawa-ken , I lived happiest moment in my life in that city. And I never felt that I was totally alone, because there are many Brazilians like me in every corner of Japan. And Japanese people really host well foreigners .

    I'm Japanese and sometimes foreigners ask me a direction. Half of people from other country ask me Excuse me in English or other languages. In my opinion, if you want to be a polite person, it's better to ask like Sumimasen even if you don't speak Japanese after that :)

    Lucky for me I'm planning ahead... several years ahead... I'm 13 and I'm learning Japanese now for many reasons, one of them being I would like to visit Japan one day. So by the time I even have the option of going there I should be fluent enough to at least get around without too much trouble.
