Make sure you know where you're going to stay, figure out food, and how to travel by train (in case you need to).

know that 男 means "man/male" and 女 means "woman/female"
if you see the 女 sign, chances are, the thing is for females only (ex. female-only train, female bathroom, etc)

getting a smartphone if you haven't already is probably a good option - some people who knew 0 Japanese were able to get around by using GPS and google translate (good enough for single words)

ideally, you'd learn the very basics:
asking where something is,
how much something,
introducing oneself,
etc
as well as katakana (so you can read the western food in the menu)
but 2 months might not be enough for that.

DON'T SCREAM OR SHOW ANY LOUD EMOTIONS IN PUBLIC!

It's really rude in Japan (not sure about the rest of Asia, tbh).

Bring me back Robin and Lucina amiibo. Lol. No, really, though, in addition to what's already been stated, maybe double-check you either have a compatible credit or debit card that will work in Japan, or figure out the money system and how much you'll need to get converted.

Go to Toho. One of the best places to go. See all the good movies they had made over the years

This post actually reminded me to call about that. That'll help in the long run.

Congrats! A friend of mine always wanted to go and when he did for his job, could not wait to get back. Hope your experience will be better. What kind of work?

Avoid tentacles at any and all cost.



Police Sketch of a Squid


Squids inside of Japan are vicious serial-rapists. If you see a squid attacking schoolgirls, don't try to be a hero. Just walk on by and pretend you saw nothing.
