Strange Things You Might See in Japan I

Here are a few interesting signs you might run into in Japan.

Please Don’t Stay Here

Come and visit, but for Pete’s sake leave!

Toilet Sign

Special needs toilets — only 1 legged headless women or otherwise normal headless men allowed.

Restroom sign

 While it may be in the depths of the parking lot, it WAS actually aboveground, at least.

    I used to have one of those Expats from the US in my previous workplace. He came from the US and he wondered about so many things aloud and I chuckled with him because whatever he wonders did not seem so strange to his Japanese peers. I somehow had to translate whatever he wondered about to his Japanese colleagues and that was a tough work, because I somehow had to relay the inquisitiveness of the man to his friends without getting too inquisitive. :-)
    I see great work in your blogposts and enjoy your site. Please continue the great work! I definitely would like to be enlisted for the reader. Thanks!

    Thanks for your kind words. It is always funny to go someplace you’ve never been (and this happens to everyone I think) and be amazed or confused by something everyone from there doesn’t even notice. :)

    it`s nice they tranlated those signs in english. i`ve seen some attention signs written in chinese but the only words in english were: “This is for foreign tourists”. :)
