ISSUE N°3 LEARN JAPANESE POD . COM FALL 2007 Hi, I’m Alex. Thank you for downloading this travel Japanese guide My aim was to make an easy and useful travel Japanese guide to help you have a more enjoyable and smoother trip to Japan. This is the cheat sheet that I wish I’d been given when I first came to Japan. I’ve lived and traveled around Japan for the last 20 years, so I know what a fantastic country it is to visit and explore. I also know how overwhelming it is to be in a different culture with limited language skills. However, there is some good news. First, the Japanese are extremely patient and appreciative of people who make the effort to try and speak even a little Japanese. A simple sumimasen (excuse me) and arigato (thank you) go a long way in Japan. Second and most importantly, you probably need a lot less Japanese than you think to travel around Japan and really enjoy your trip. You don’t need to have a huge vocabulary, you just need the right vocabulary. That

means knowing the words and phrases that are the most commonly used in the widest number of situations. This is what I’ve put together here for you This guide provides a list some of the most useful and effective vocabulary and phrases I have used on my own travels in Japan. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. I’d love to get your feedback on this guide, so please send your comments, ideas and questions to me at Happy travels in Japan!
