Thanks to all the tour guides posting here
I don't plan on going but I thought for those who are, that someone comment on any language issues that might exist.
For example, I went to Japan a few years ago and visited mostly major cities including Tokyo. I was shocked at how little English was spoken there and in many/most places none was spoken. Thankfully I was with a friend in the US Navy stationed there who had invested time in learning some key phrases in Japan or I would have been toast!
Any counselling there might help those who do not speak any Asian languages....
Sounds like fun though. I'd love to come but for now I'd settle for getting it on TV!
