One of the most pleasurable aspects of world travel is learning languages other than your own, so be sure to pick up a little Japanese during your vacation. Knowing how to use some simple words, such as "Isshoni odorimasenka?", which is "Would you like to dance with me?", can make your stay all the more memorable. And "Benjo wa doko desu ka?", which translates as "Where's the toilet?"
When it is time to depart from this special place, say goodbye the way they do in Japanese, with a heartfelt "Sayōnara."
