The picture makes this look like something substantial almost like a reference guide. It's not like that at all. The print is very small in correlation with the size of the "booklet" which is about the size of a baseball card. It is also very thin and almost feels like something out of a vending machine. This is not a product I would recommend to anyone, even a fan of the Legend of Zelda. I'm glad it came late in the mail so my brother didn't have feign joy at receiving it for Christmas. Sorry...
The passport is a great jumping-off point if you want to learn Japanese, or just want a study aid to practice what you know already. It cannot be overstated how useful it was to a beginner like me (I have been teaching myself for just under a year, now) finally apply my knowledge a little bit.
We can get you through customs, but you'll have to handle the Famicom Disk System yourself.
A companion to Legends of Localization Book 1: The Legend of Zelda, the Passport to the Legend of Zelda is packed with all the information you need to experience the Japanese version of Zelda for yourself: character charts, basic grammar rules, and a full dictionary of every word in the game.
This Passport also contains a tutorial on how to explore the Japanese side of the Internet without actually knowing Japanese, as well as a guide on sights and sounds to look for when playing the Japanese version of the game!
If you've ever wanted to dabble in learning basic Japanese but have been too scared, let this simple guide lead the way. In fact, Clyde "Tomato" Mandelin designed it to mimic his own first forays into the Japanese language years ago!
