Depends on how you define speaking English. Most Japanese have studied English in school and can manage very simple responses if asked a concrete question like Where is the train station? Many police can give you simple directions in stilted English. The number who have native or near native level English is much, much smaller. k views · View 3 Upvoters.

A Japanese proverb (諺, ことわざ, kotowaza) may take the form of: a short saying (言い習わし iinarawashi), an idiomatic phrase (慣用句 kan'yōku), or. a four-character idiom (四字熟語 yojijukugo). Although "proverb" and "saying" are practically synonymous, the same cannot be said about "idiomatic phrase" and "four-character idiom". Not all kan'yōku and yojijukugo are proverbial. For instance, the kan'yōku 狐の嫁入り kitsune no yomeiri (Literally: a fox's wedding.

Every page has a bunch of drawings; each is captioned with its name in English and Japanese.

Unfortunately, there's no pronunciation information to tell you how to say it in Japanese (for instance something like "koh-nee-chee-wah"), so unless you can read Japanese (and why would you buy this book if you can do that), there's no way to even try to say what you want; all you can do is point.

My other gripe, although it's not really a problem, is that the pictures aren't always the best match to the word - for instance, the picture that goes with "park" is just a couple of flowers.

On the upside, the book is nice and small so it's easy to carry around.

This is a nice little book that you can carry in your pocket. It's smaller than the passport. It has quite a few simple but frequently used sentences/phrases that are very helpful during the trip (like asking directions, buying stuff, etc.) Lots of illustrations with Japanese & English words so you can just find the one and show it to people without having to say a word!

The only drawback is that it didn't show the pronunciation of the Kanjis in the book. It would have been a great help in learning how to pronounce these words in Japanese correctly.

This book is a life saver. I just came back from Japan and this book proved to be useful time after time. Its easy to use and fits in your pocket. It's pure genius!
