Preparing for Foreign Tourists

I feel a bit guilty about posting this. It is almost as bad as making fun of English writing on T-shirts, bags and such. I can't resist though. Japan has started on a campaign to attract foreign tourists, but it appears they have a lot more to do. Some of the names of buildings on the map are in English---great tourist attractions like a nursery school and government offices---but nothing else. I really doubt that many tourists will learn Japanese before a visit, especially kanji.
