Touché Tuesday Advice Column

Need advice from Jen? Fill out this form. 

Dear Jen,
I am moving to Japan in a year and have started learning Japanese. What are the first words/sentences/phrases you think I should learn?
Arigatou gozaimasu, Kacey

Dear Kacey,
You must start out with extremely useful words/sentences/phrases, such as:
  1. Point me in the direction of one of those crazy panty vending machines so I can take pictures for my American friends.
  2. Wait, you expect me to squat over that hole AND not use toilet paper?
  3. Please stop rubbing your Hello Kitty on me.
  4. Restaurant 
  5. Which way to Takashi Miike's house?
  6. Hey Takashi Miike! My friend Jen super loves your crazy horror movies. You should sign a one trillion dollar bill and give it to her.
  7. Stop calling the police, Takashi Miike. I'll get off your property.
Here's a site that obviously thinks it knows more than me about communicating in Japan. It covers useful words and expressions like "hospital", "thank you", and "how much is this". Boring!
♥ Jen
