Language Barrier

PAO | May 25, 2012 03:33 PM

I'd like some tips on how everyone managed with the language barrier. In Tokyo we'll have friends who speak Japanese, but in Kyoto we won't. Further, we're staying in a rental house, not a hotel. We'd like to have one or two Japanese meals in some of the better restaurants. How do you make reservations? How do you order? Would appreciate any help you can offer!
