Austrian-German phrasebook

While the national language of Austria may be German, most Austrians speak a Bavarian dialect, and you’ll find it easier to connect with the locals after learning a few phrases.

Comfortable slip-ons

In Japan, you must take off your shoes when entering homes, temples, ryokans and traditional restaurants, so bring a pair of sandals you can easily slip in and out of.
