TRAVELING WITH APPS - Tokyo

My visit to Tokyo and the Japanese language

I've never been to Tokyo or Japan for that matter. The place has always fascinated me, but the language barrier, and especially Japanese script always made me put off a trip. I could have taken one of those phrase books, but I think I'd feel a bit silly flipping through pages looking for the right words of phrase and then pronouncing then wrong.

Then I discovered the IPad and some great, free Japanese language apps for the traveler. The first Japanese travel app that I got was the \\"World Nomads Japanese\\" language guide. Apart from being a Japanese language course for the beginner, it also has enough words and phrases to get you through a Japanese vacation. I worked through this for a couple of months just to get used to way words and letters are pronounced.

Closer to our trip I began using the \\"Human Japanese\\" language travel app. This has over 1800 recorded words and phrases, a really great and easy to search dictionary as well as background info about sentence construction and grammar. Then for the trip itself I took along the \\"Human Japanese\\" app and another Japanese language travel app called \\"Language Learner\\".

What a vacation, what a language

Without my IPad and its travel apps – I would have been lost! Don't get me wrong, I had a fantastic time and the Japanese language apps made it possible to understand and be understood almost everywhere I went. But trying to decipher a Japanese sign – no way! And even when things are also in English – let's just say that the English version can be almost as difficult as the Japanese version.

Once again, my app came to the rescue. A friend had told me about a site called 10travelapps.com and there, just a few hours after arriving in Tokyo, I had already downloaded some great travel apps that made my stay in Tokyo so much easier and an experience that I'll remember for a long time.

\\"Tokyo Teleport Plus Video Guide\\" is a really fantastic Tokyo travel app. It has so much information in the form of videos, presentations, pre-planned itineraries and even a GPS based map, that touring Tokyo becomes really easy and worry free.

Another great travel app for using Tokyo's public transport system is the \\"Go! TOKYO\\" app. This is an essential for any visitor to Tokyo!

Bottom line – Tokyo is a great city, huge, crowded, fast and with no end of places to go and things to see and do. The people are friendly, the food is brilliant and even the language, thanks to some excellent travel apps, wasn't a problem.
