Fortunately, Japanese Airports and train stations have a more than decent use of English which allows the weary traveller a seamless transit. However, the use of English is Japan goes beyond the practical and is often seen in a fashionable manner. It is therefore surprisingly easy to know what is being sold in the stores and shopping centres. Sometimes, It may take a long while, if not forever, to understand the meaning, some examples are: “Become heated paradise” and “dream song into my world”. Whether they are funny or informative, English signs in Japan will prove valuable, especially to know where to go shopping, and provide an occasional good laugh!
