On our first day in Nagoya we discovered a new solution to the age old travellers problem of "How to Get Directions When you Don’t Know the Language."

Step one:

Find a car showroom (any will do but of course we recommend Toyota)

Step Two:

Take inordinate interest in a car with latest technology.

Step Three:

Boot up the touch screen GPS!!

Et voila! You have a map which tells you where you are and which with the use of nothing more than your finger on the touch screen you can find anywhere you need – even a specific address in Nagoya as you can enter phone numbers if need be – so no language issue either!

Happy travelling!!
