Hi! Love your Japan entries cos ur itinerary is so unique! Can Alfred or you speak/read Japanese? Just wondering cos you two look so adventurous!
Thanks for the comment! We can't really speak much Japanese other than the very very basic like "where's the toilet", "good morning", "thank you"....etc...However since many Japanese characters (Kanji) is pretty similar to Chinese characters, so we can somewhat guess the meanings when we see Kanji.Anyway, many signages & maps are in English (esp Tokyo, Sapporo, Kyoto).
