For many travelers, getting to live like a local and having the opportunity to connect with new people is a big priority. In Japan, this can be challenging due to the language barrier. Since half of all communication is non-verbal, I figured there must be some ways for visitors to Japan to overcome language differences and really experience the country in depth.

I knew about karaoke being a big deal in Japan, it is just something that everyone enjoys but to think of baseball as a way to connect with people - I would have never thought of that!! It makes sense though because you are part of a large crowd cheering on the same thing. It is easy to enjoy something like that without speaking a word.
