Need to speak Japanese

Recommended Posts

Can you get by in Japan without speaking any Japanese? I am thinking of booking a holiday for next ski season to check out all of this amazing stuff I have been reading on this web sight. Looks incredible.

No problem. I know people who have lived here for years who barely speak the language and don't understand it.

No need to, but if you do you will get more meaningful relationships with the natives here.

Naaah. Get on better in Japan if you know either no Japanese or are fluent. In between is the worst part.

I think you will find you'll be treated with more respect if you do put an effort into speaking Japanese. Will get more "real" friends too.
