    Hi again does anyone know where to book tickets for the ghibli museum? I've seen a few places but I'm not too sure on how to book (if that makes any sense). And also is it worth booking with a company who pick you up and give you a tour? cos there was one company i saw but it was like £90 and on another site i saw tickets were £5 (no tour etc) but im hoping someone whos been there and gone through the buying process before can help me out here

    You can buy tickets from your local Lawson conbini. http://www.lawson.co.jp/ghibli/museu...t/english.html

    To get to the Ghibli museum you take a 20 minute train from shibuya to kichijoji (190 yen) and walk 15 minutes from the station. £90 for a tour is mental.

    I haven't been here ages. I hope everyone's been doing well. Currently applying for summer school in Kyushu, hope I get in. There was some interesting ones in Tokyo but they were like 400,000 yen...**** that.

    Wow,they've seemed to have changed things since I went, I don't remember them being anal about entry times. We just turned up and showed our tickets.

    I DID remember that we couldn't buy tickets in Japan apparently, we had to buy them online and then exchange them somewhere in addition to picking a certain day to go. Really stupid.

    Anyone here who could tell me what 意見を尽くす means?
    I'm translating this text for my thesis, and I understand the sentence, I just don't know how to translate that expression... doesn't make any sense to me and it doesn't seem to appear in any dictionary.
    The full sentence is:
    "右の例を見て分かるよ †ã«ã€ã€Œï½žã«å¯¾ã—て」は ã€Œã«ã€ã ã‘ã§ã‚‚ååˆ†æ„è¦ ‹ã‚’尽くすことができる㠁®ã§ã‚って、翻訳調を帯 びた表現であることはだ„うまでもない。"

    The text is about Japanese grammar and the influence translations had on expressions such as ni tai****e, ni yotte etc. Help??
    thank you

    edit: in case the characters aren't displayed properly, this is the sentence in rômaji: "migi no rei wo mitewakaru yô ni, "--ni tai****e" ha "ni" dake demo jûbun iken wo tsukusu koto ga dekiru no de atte, hon'yakuchô wo obita hyôgen de aru koto wa iu made mo nai"

    any help is very much appreciated

    I've been looking into it further and can only seem to find that you need to buy tickets before you go to japan (other than the lawsons link) and i dont want to get there and for it to be too late :/

    Where did you read this? it seems so weird, we just casually bought tickets from the convenience store... how could it be possible that you have to be outside japan to buy tickets? how would japanese people be able to visit?

    How long are you gonna be there for? I doubt they'll be sold of tickets if you're there for a couple of weeks or even 1 week really. Might as well buy them at Lawsons since you have to be in London to actually get the tickets from the ticket touts if I remember right.

    We're going to be there for 3 weeks but we're only in Tokyo for a week, we're seeing the other big cities for the middle 2 week period I've found one site 'japan specialists' which post them to you and then you exchange the confirmation slip for the ticket at the museum which is initially what i thought you'd have to do if you were a tourist. I think we'll be doing this but use Lawsons if there's some sort of complication

    Hi everyone.
    I've recently started using a website in my a level Japanese class called Language Perfect and it's amazing, if you can, you should invest in an account! I need to learn 200 kanji this year on top of the 200 from GCSE and this is a godsend for me. ;o
    Anyway I'm currently writing an essay on genkouyoushi and I want to write a phone number, in alphanumerics, and I'm not sure on the rules for this. I would guess that I should write /sideways/ with two numbers per box, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know the correct way for doing this?

    I think it's one character per box, whatever the character is, aside from punctuation.

    In genkouyoushi, you have to write right to left, top to bottom.

    Hmm yes probably, it just takes up so much space that it just doesn't seem very efficient, haha!

    Has anyone ever booked tickets for tokyo disneyland or willer express before? I've been trying to book tickets myself and they both ask for a phone number (fair enough) but they both seem to reject my number and says 'incorrect phone number' i've tried all sorts of different methods including +44,0044 so if anyone has booked something like this before and can help, it'd be fantastic!

    thanks in advance!

    I have done it! I have mastered both Hiragana and Katakan despite spending a GOOD 15min on them each day for the past 2 week

    out of the two i would say katakana caused me the most problem simply due to its simplicity and sharp strokes, but nevertheless i enjoyed it

    now i can't wait to get started with the Kanji! which is described as the most challenging of all:yikes: but if i got through kata and hiragana within 2 weeks i am up for anything

    EDIT: Goodness knows why one character decided to mess up there. Here's the romaji: nihongo ga hanaseru hito ga iru no ka?

    Hello, all. I just thought I'd bump this thread up a bit and introduce myself while I'm at it. I'm planning on taking Japanese Studies into university, and I've been self-studying Japanese for two or three years now.
