"Make a little effort and learn..." Language Tip by asantetravel
Language, Kyoto: 7 reviews and 3 photos
Make a little effort and learn some Japanese. Most college educated people have studied English for 10 years but very few people speak it or want to be bothered. If you use some Japanese in asking for help even the most stubborn people will be more open to helping you. Sumimasen ? excuse me/I?m sorry, Arigato ? thanks, * doko desu ka ? where is?. Still, be prepared for people to tell you ?no English? in English of course!
