I saw the news topics about tourists in Japan in TV. Trips is a topic every summer. A lot of Japanese have gone abroad every summer. However, they don't go this summer because the charge for flight is so expensive now. On the other hand many foreigners come to Japan as tourists. I recently see a lot of tourists in town.
Tokyo is international mega city. I think that Japanese hospitality and services are excellent at hotels or restaurants. But many tourists would be annoyed about language during trip. There are English signs at station or buildings in town. Some staffs at big department store or restaurant in hotel can communicate in English. However, almost Japanese can't speak English. We certainly study English in school for about 6 years, but we have not had a chance to communicate in English in our daily life.
I'd like to advice you for your Japanese trip. You can enjoy your trips in Japan if you ask us by simple Japanese. When we hear that other countries people speak Japanese even a little, we are so glad. We would try to do best to help you even if we can't speak English or your language. I think Japanese are kind for other people originally. We would help tourists who have interests of Japan. And we would warmly welcome you.
