*Imagines Valentine-san saying "sakana, sakana!!" to random Japanese people on the streets of Tokyo*

I don't know, coco-san... Do you need money in Japanese jail? ;)

There are usually 5 things that I learn before visiting another country.

1. Hello (konnichiwa)
2. Thank you (arigatou gozaimasu)
3. How much? (ikura desu ka)
4. numbers (http://sp.cis.iwate-u.ac.jp/sp/lesson/j/doc/numbers.html)
5. Where's the bathroom? (toire wa doko desu ka?)

These should get you quite a bit further than sakana!

Exactly. And it might also be useful to learn which is the symbol for "men" (男) and "women" (女) in order to avoid embarrassing situations. :)

You should learn more of the language before going to Japan than you would going to a lot of other countries because virtually no one at all speaks English.

Maybe if you brought all your necessities with you and than built a house in a place where there was virtually no civilization you might :D
