Absolutely no way, unless you want to use a guide for the whole thing. It's going to require a moderately good grasp on the language, lots of text.

No, there's just no way to play it without using a guide the whole way through, or understanding Japanese. You can try, for sure, but it's going to be like typing Shakespeare by smashing on a typewriter.
