"Japanese people mostly don't..." Japan Favorite Tip by RahulGarg

Japan General: 707 reviews and 1,884 photos

Favorite thing: Japanese people mostly don't understand English. So if you're travelling for the first time, get your sign language skills sharpened. They would try to help you, but its upto you to explain to them what you want.

Fondest memory: Once we were slightly off the way from the nearest station, and it was pretty late in the night. We asked a woman for the directions in our crude sign language, and she could somehow make out where we were upto. She went to her house, got her car, and dropped us to the place. I think that was quite gr8 experience.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
