I read everyone will be friendly and helpful, but I'd like to prepare.
Where can I get simple answers to basic everyday questions before touring Japan alone, for instance :
- how to use a bus in Tokyo or elsewhere ?
- how to get a taxi ?
- how to use the train ?
- how to order a meal in a restaurant (apart from pointing) ?
- how to find a toilet ?
- will I find town maps and street names I can read ?
- which 5 words should I learn (that's about my limit !) ?
And what were you most thrown by in your first minutes in Japan ?
