Getting lost in Tokyo 英会話「あぜりあ」本八幡・西船橋・津田沼・佐倉

I know what you’re thinking “How do you get lost in such a big place like Tokyo!” Ha Ha, well my friends, you just do. I mean sure we have our cell phones or tablets so we can just use Google Maps or call a friend for help.

However, if you just have a knack for going the wrong way like myself, then I feel for you. More often than not I am boarding the wrong train or bus, or walking out the wrong exit at a train station. I know, what a horrible way to live right? I mean I never had this problem in Florida and I am sure that is because I drove a car everywhere. Oh how I miss street names on every corner and not having to run for the wrong train.

Usually when I get lost around Tokyo I tend to panic (especially if I’m in a hurry) for all of about 30 seconds or less while trying to figure out at what point I went the wrong way. Being in another country and trying to find your way can be a bit trying at times, even if you have been there for a long time.

Have you ever travelled to another country before and gotten lost (if you want to blame your navigation app that is also ok in my book)?

Please share with me in the comments your reaction upon becoming lost and what you did in order to find the proper route or/the right way to go.


p.s. Do you have any suggestions for a navigation app other than Google Maps?
