It's not the lack of English that keeps people away it's the perception of it. I visit Japan every year and even with virtually no Japanese language skill get by perfectly well. When at home and on internet forums I'm constantly bombarded with questions on how hard is it to get by in Japan. There needs to be far more done to help tourists if that is what they want.

He was the world's number one ranked call of duty player until his arrest.

it won't be sold on ebay, the seller is just looking for publicity, no way would anyone sell a multi- million dollar item with all the fees involved.
