@Language
There is only one official language spoken in Japan, which is of course Japanese.
English is well understood in Japan since English is the foreign language that evryone must learn as part of our compulsory education.
Many English words are also localized in to Japanese.
We advise you to speak more slowly when you talk to Japanese.

English is being used as a term in golf play in Japan too, however, there are some differences in the way of saying between Japan and West.
