Hey! OP here. Thanks for your concern, everyone! ありがとう！ So what happened was my school is an hour away from my host family's home, and I've only taken it a few times so far with my host sister. So I really panicked when I got on the train and forgot what number our stop was! And my wifi doesn't work here, so Google Translate was a no go. So I sort of just sat there quietly panicking for an hour. Luckily, I have taken a year of Japanese and was able to ask some basic questions, and the announcer said the name of my town at least five times before we arrived, so in the end all was okay! Also, Japan is awesome.

Oh that's the worst. There's also a really spiffy train app you can get, so you can program where you need to go in and it will tell you what trains you need to take. It's how I survived the week I was in Japan. I only know a handful of Japanese words and phrases, myself.
Good thing Japan is a tiny island. You can't get too far away...
