I will help you with your trip to Japan
Updated: Nov 13, 2019
Planning on going to Japan?
Worrying about visiting the country for the first time?
My name is Kumi.
I'm Japanese and have been working as a translator (English-Japanese) since 2006. I would like to be your help before and during your trip to Japan.
If you are wondering about
- accommodations (hotels, airbnb, campsite)
- public transportation v.s.taking taxi
- food (including help with food allergy)
- how to be polite in Japan
- greetings in Japanese
- how to take Onsen (hot spring)
- sightseeing spots
- car/bicycle rentals
- medical issues
and other things, .... just ask me!
I will do any research for you in Japanese and come back to you in English.
Not many people speak English in Japan.
I can translate e-mails and letters or even do online interpretation.
For help and written translations I offer my service on the "fiverr" platform at a reasonable price. The link to my "fiverr" gig is below. It is free to visit, so please have a look and if you like it contact me on "fiverr".
For online interpretation (for me to actually translate Japanese-English on a smartphone), I use the "Oyraa" platform.
If you need to communicate with people in Japan, and if no one around you is able to help out with the language, I may be able to help!
If you have a smartphone in an environment with WiFi connection, you can hire me as your interpreter from Japan or elsewhere; so for that, the link to my "Oyraa" profile is below.
I don't live in Japan at the moment, but once I was an Airbnb super-host in Japan and hosted people from different countries in Mie prefecture (close from Ise shrine).
I always loved helping visitors in Japan and I hope to continue helping still - now from outside of Japan :)
Hope you have a great time in my country!
