With a practice run for the Olympics’ traffic flow, you would think that signs on the expressway would be bilingual (e.g. Japanese & English) but no chance of that. There were none. I had no idea which ramps were open & had to contact my office for advice on Friday morning. My usual journey took twice as long as normal as I usually drive to work.
Do the Olympics’ organizers & the Expressway managers think that only Japanese speakers will be driving cars in Tokyo during the Olympics & all year round ?! Take a tip from the train companies who have bilingual messages on all trains already & all Station signs are in romaji as well. Very practical.
