You should probably learn some basic phrases at the very least.

I've visited Japan three times when I was a child / young teen. It was mainly to visit my uncle/ aunt/ cousin living in Saitama

Saitama is a country area by Tokyo, but I never really got to go to the "flashy" part of Tokyo But Saitama was a very pleasant place, plenty of fresh air and there's a real, humble sort of atmosphere. We weren't really there to go sight seeing or to go buy this or that, it was basically just living everyday life with part of the family.

One day I'd like to see Tokyo! Anyways, I've stayed in my family's place there for like, 2-4 week periods. Once when I was 8, from that time I only distinctly remember playing warioland on my gameboy. The other time I don't remember much either, but the last time I went I was 14 and was already kind of tired and homesick because I stayed in Taiwan for a month right before haha. Expect to feel taller and bigger there (even if you're not very tall or big, the environment just seems eer, "scaled down" ), to feel like everything is expensive, and to see some really crazy stuff on television (I think most people here know that).

I actually would really like to visit Japan again... unfortunately I did not take many photos last time, it was a bit of an odd experience because my auntie was having a rough emotionally and psychologically, with gambling issues and stupid stuff. I still have this oversized hoodie though... It really reminds me of the artwork for btbam's "colors"

TLDR; Watch lost in translation

Most of the important signs should be in English. However, just to be on the safe side:

There's enough English for you to survive. Learning a few set phrases definitely couldn't hurt, but a lot of people do speak English to some degree.

Most of the japanese are very racist toward you if you don't know some basic japanese.

As long as you dont butcher the shit out of it. that'll irritate them even more. First hand experience.

You will have to ride a train eventually, but this is so true, especially if you are a woman, Trains are packed tight and then you get dirty old men who feel people up. It happened to my mum while she worked in tokyo all the time.























No not as a prostitute.
