I plan on visiting Japan later this year, and there are two things I'd like to have a smartphone for while there:
- Give me my position (GPS) and directions (Google Maps or equivalent) at any time
- Photograph and translate Japanese writing (which I don't understand whatsoever)
I won't need the thing otherwise, so I'd probably just rent it there if possible. What should I get and where can I do that? I will be staying at Kyoto.
