Dear Sirs,

I'd like to ask for your advice, concerning using the Romaji (Romanization for Japanese) in a phrasebook. Which one: Nippon, Kunrei or Hepburn would you recommend to use in a phrasebook for English speaking persons. I would appreciate you thoughts on this. Thank you in advance.

Hepburn is the most widely used, the most natural for English speakers, and is also, apparently, the form of romaji used with Japanese students when English. For this reason I would recommend it, despite its lack of precision. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romaji
