Read full description of the books Japanese Phrasebook:This it a very useful pocket reference to use when travelling. I just wonder how easy these phrases are to remember for a person that knows absolutely no Japanese. For me it comes easier because I have studied the language as well as the sentence structure, so a lot of it is just remembering the vocabulary. I think another point that any traveler needs to keep in mind is that Japanese focuses on intonation as well. If someone uses the wrong intonation, it could completely change the meaning of the word. Unfortunately, this book doesn't really express that. For example: "kAmi" (with the stress on the "A") means "god", whereas "kamI" (with a stress on the "I") means "paper". Usually context will help, but it's just a point that travelers should be aware of. I would recommend other references that also include audio so that you can hear how the words sound.
Read information about the authorOUR STORY
A beat-up old car, a few dollars in the pocket and a sense of adventure. In 1972 that’s all Tony and Maureen Wheeler needed for the trip of a lifetime – across Europe and Asia overland to Australia. It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at their kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide, Across Asia on the Cheap. Within a week they’d sold 1500 copies and Lonely Planet was born. One hundred million guidebooks later, Lonely Planet is the world’s leading travel guide publisher with content to almost every destination on the planet.
