Japan is welcoming a large and growing number of inbound tourists, but many of them are facing a language barrier. The logical solution would be to use guide interpreters, but to become a licensed one requires passing a difficult national examination. This has left Japan with a shortage of guide interpreters and presents the country with a barrier to increasing the number of inbound tourists.
Fortunately, Japanese law underwent a change in 2018 that allowed people without a license to work as paid guide interpreters.
