Ordering at an izakaya

Japan is famous for its Izakayas. Izakayas are cozy bars that offer unique snacking menus and a fun atmosphere to enjoy drinks with friends. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to order common foods at each of these locales. 

Navigating transportation 

Japan is known for its fantastic transportation system. You can go from Tokyo to Nagoya in less than two hours on the bullet train, known as the shinkansen (新幹線). In a car, it would take you four and a half hours to drive that same distance! 

In this video, you’ll learn phrases that will help you purchase a ticket, determine route details, and find a seat. 

Asking for recommendations

From art galleries and famous jazz clubs to sprawling gardens and countryside temples, there’s so much to do in Japan! To find the best spots to visit, all you have to do is ask. 

In this lesson, you’ll preview popular islands, cities, and parks as you learn phrases that help you determine where to go and how to get there.
