Traveling to another country is an exciting experience, but simple things like taking public transportation or ordering items off of a menu can become challenging when there's a significant language barrier to deal with. That being said, Americans planning to take a Japan vacation may want to start thinking about what they can do to make their trip go a bit smoother.

Fortunately, thanks to the rising prevalence of smartphones over the past few years, there are a number of helpful apps you can download right to your device as you prepare for your trip to this gorgeous and exciting Eastern country. In this post, we'll take a look at a few of them:

imiwa? (Japanese dictionary) – This free, highly rated app contains a comprehensive list of Japanese words and their English translations. It even comes with a built-in Japanese touch keyboard, making it that much easier and more efficient to use.

TeePee Guide – Japan Dining & Travel – As its name suggestions, TeePee Guide enables users to find more than 40,000 restaurants, shops, and other establishments under categories that include "Eat," "Stay," "Shop" and "Play."
