General Information

Will travel in Japan be difficult without Japanese language skills?

Traveling in a country where you don't speak the language can be both challenging and rewarding.

Even if you don't speak any Japanese, finding your way around Japan shouldn't be too difficult. English is generally understood throughout the country, particularly in major cities and tourist centers.

Combine this with some positive body language and gestures, and you shouldn't encounter many problems.

Public transportation announcements are frequently made in both Japanese and English, and signs generally include pictograms or English explanations.

A comprehensive range of tourist services also provide a helping hand to foreign visitors in Japan.

We offer the brochure Tourist Language Handbook for download or in printed form to take with you to make your trip easier.
