This is a list of phrases I had ready to go last time… Not sure how helpful they will be this time considering I have forgotten 95% of the Japanese I learned. 😦 These aren’t the phrases you would think – like, where is the washroom? Or how much does this cost? Apparently, 5 years ago, these are the phrases I wanted to remember.
