As far as languages go, Japanese falls somewhere in the middle. It’s easier than languages like Chinese and Arabic, with simple and straightforward rules, but a little less familiar than Romance languages like Spanish or French. Even if you don’t plan on mastering Japanese, learning a few phrases before your trip to Japan can help make your experience more pleasant.

Basics
  •     Hello- konnichiwa
  •     Goodbye- Sayonara
  •     Thank you- Arigatoo gozaimasu
  •     You’re welcome- Doo itashimashite
  •     I’m sorry- Gomen’nasai
