Japan mission trip-need some translations

Question asked by madmax on May 8, 2013

I will be heading off the the Tsunami ridden areas of Japan May 20th and am interested in learning a few Japanese phrases or at least words that may be useful during the trip.

Since none of the people we will be in contact with speak English, we will have a translator to be the go between. However, it would be so nice to know some of the language for at least a little bit of personal communication. I have looked up some words online but they don't give the pronunciation, only the word.

Anyone out there versed in Japanese? I would like to know what the words are and how to pronounce the following:

Good morning!

Thank you!

Goodbye (I know Sayonara but there is an informal word used)

Very nice

Please

 

Also, if there are other words or phrases that could be useful, I'm all ears.

Any help would be nice thanks.
