Dear all,
Good morning. Today, i’ll like to share with you how to ask for directions.

すみません. (Su-mi-ma-sen/ Excuse Me)
道に迷いました。 (mi-chi  ni  ma-yo-i-ma-shita / I am lost)   -Optional to say
______(Place that you wish to go) までは どうやって 行きますか。 (_________(Place that you wish to go)  ma-de wa  dou-yatte   i-ki-masu ka / How do i get to _______)

Example:
すみません。 (su-mi-masen / Excuse Me)
道にまよいました。 (michi-ni-ma-yo-i-ma-shita / I am lost)
しんじゅくまでは どうやって いきますか (shinjuku ma-de wa dou-yatte iki-masu ka / How do i get to Shinjuku?)

You might hear words like ひだり (hidari / left)   ,   みぎ (migi / right) ,  まえ (mae/ front)  , うしろ (ushiro / back) , あがって (a-ga-tte / go up) , まがって (ma-ga-tte / turn) , つきあたり (tsu-ki-atari / end of the street) , わかりません (wakarimasen/ i don’t know)
