Fancy watching some sumo wrestling or marshall arts? Maybe you'd like to visit a bonsai garden? Whatever you do in Japan, don't forget to download your Japanese Talking Phrasebook!

With over 500 professionally translated words and phrases in 40 separate categories it's an essential download if you're visiting the Land of the Rising Sun!

The Phrasebook contains audio translations recorded by a native Japanese voice-over artist providing you with perfect pronunciations. This will help you get to grips with the lingo and will get you sounding like a local in no time! In addition to the audio, each of the 500+ phrases have been translated into both Japanese and Romaji*.

Since 2006 Coolgorilla's Talking Phrasebooks have been designed with travelers in mind. They operate offline so you'll never have to pay for roaming data charges unlike some other phrasebooks out there and you can use them whilst in remote areas with no internet connection. Even use them on the flight out there or on one of Japan's many remote islands.

Each of the 40 categories are laid out in an easy to use menu system and with the search function the exact phrase you need is only ever a finger tap away!

As well as the phrases you'd expect, this app also includes a few to have a bit of fun with. Why not let the locals know you've come to Japan to become a sumo wrestler or you could even try and convince them that you're the karaoke champion of the world!

Download your Talking Phrasebook now to get the max out of your vacation!
