Hi all,

I have a little trouble, and I thought I would ask the BGG community for help.

A friend and I are going to Japan in late October for 3 weeks. During our stay, we will be traveling quite a bit but will spend roughly a week in Tokyo (from October 24th through the 27th, and then November 9th and 10th). While there, we would love to visit the Tsukuba Space Center but sadly were unable to get in the English language tour. So now I am looking for someone who would be able to arrange the visit and then come with us on the Japanese tour (as we speak very little Japanese). We are not looking for someone to translate the entire tour just someone to come with us so we can follow the instructions of the tour guide. Of course, we would be more than happy to pay for the bus and admission for that person.

Sincerely,
- Rince

If you don't get any takers it is pretty easy to just follow the heard and figure out what to do.

I've found that the Google Translate app works well for getting the gist of Japanese text... But this requires cellular data or wifi access.

My Japanese is atrocious but I've found there's usually someone in a large group that knows some English. Maintain a sense of humor and a friendly face and you'll do just fine.
