e! Kore

I have a friend who will be coming to Japan for the first time soon. They asked me if there were any good Japanese websites they should look at before they come here. Do you have any recommendations?

We have just the article for you. It’s called “Survival Japanese for travellers to Japan!“. Here we show you all kinds of websites introducing things like basic Japanese greetings, expressions accompanied by illustrations of sushi toppings and so on. Please check if there are any your friend might find useful, then let them know!
