If you truly want to enjoy a foreign excursion, and experience everything the country has to offer, you have to dive-in head-first. Mingling with locals is a must. Sure, the Lonely Planets and Trip Advisors of the world will give you a basic idea of where to go, what to do, and where to eat, but nothing replaces the expertise and knowledge of the locals in your immediate vicinity.
Quite often, we hesitate to tap that essential resource because we don’t speak the language. The last thing we want is to bother a stranger for directions or a restaurant recommendation, only to discover that there is a language barrier. It’s embarrassing, frustrating. If only you could speak Japanese!
Good news: Thanks to the Map & Talk iPhone App…with just a few clicks, you CAN speak Japanese. Seriously.

Everyone agrees that traveling abroad is a wonderful experience. And to make that trip even more memorable, receiving navigation from locals is the way to go.
While Japan offers amazing experiences for all of us, the language barrier is a challenge. Sure, many in Japan do speak English – but most speak only Japanese.
If you’re traveling to Japan, you may have experiences just like these…The taxi driver may not understand where you’d like to go. Some might not hear you when you ask for directions. Others may not understand what you’re asking.
