Sign Language On The Bus

Japanese signs - sign language on the bus

Each morning as we travelled to the destination of the day, our Overseas Adventure Guide, Hiro offered us a Japanese language lesson. We learned the basic phrases that would come in handy in day to day dealings like, thank you very much, good morning and excuse me, please. In this photo as we were on our way to Mt. Fuji, Hiro held up one of her signs showing how Fuji-san is spelled and what the Japanese letters mean. Everyone onboard appreciated her efforts and giggled as we tried the sounds out ourselves.

P.S. It was fun to see the merchants reactions when I said, 'domo arigato' (thank you very much) as they handed me any of my purchases.
