How To Travel In Japan Without Speaking Japanese eBook

Introductory offer - 25% off the regular $8 price!


Ever dreamt of visiting Japan?

Concerned that you don't speak the language?

One of the major considerations with travelling in Japan is the inscrutable Japanese language.

A seemingly incomprehensible, often kaleidoscopic, barrage of cryptic symbols awaits the foreign traveller who doesn’t speak or read the language.

I've been exploring Japan since 2000 - and I still can't speak the language. (Shameful, I know.)

From the northern wilderness of Hokkaido, via seldom seen islands like Sado and Shodoshima, down to the subtropical paradise of Okinawa, I've travelled in the major cities and well off the beaten path.

And I've picked up plenty of tips along the way.

If I can do it, so can YOU!

I've distilled 18 years of my experience into this ebook for you.

This practical Guide and Workbook covers all the essential basics you need to ensure your first (or next) trip to Japan is as Amazing as you deserve it to be.
