it did, and then the next thing that crossed my mind is that any person who lives in Japan and doesn't speak Japanese must have a really, really hard time.
There are plenty of people in the US that don't speak english and get along just fine.

Japan is an island. Only 1,310,545 people there are foreigners, as opposed to the US where 31,107,890 people are foreign born. It also doesn't help the situation that the Japanese are generally(sweeping generalization here) xenophobic. Yes, you can survive in Japan not knowing Japanese, but it'll be tough as most of their signs, books, television shows, and most of the people you'll meet will only speak Japanese. From what I understand from people I talk to who have been there, it's a very nice place to visit but living there would get very very lonely.
