Japan is our favourite travel destination and we try our best to visit there at least once a year. Every thing from the culture, people, food never stop amaze us. To us, Japan is like an encrypt country so much to explore yet there are always some challenges.
The main challenge is always the language barrier – most Japanese do not converse in English. Although language barrier does not deter nor poses difficulties when traveling in Japan, the problem arises when you are interested to understand further.
For example, pin pointing the food to order from the menu is simple and easily understood by both parties. However, when we would like to know the differences between two tonkatsu, the waitress won’t be able to explain further the difference in meat and preparation.
That’s when on certain days, we do recommend to hire a local tour guide which will makes your travel experience much better. A local guide will be able to explain in details of the sightseeing places, showing you hidden places only the locals know and even share you insights of a Japanese lifestyle. Not only that, with a tour guide, you will be able to explore the place more efficiently as you wont get lost
