日本での一年間

Signs

Japan has a tendency to make everything cute. From No Smoking signs to manhole covers, the most mundane things are overly adorable. I have posted many other sign pictures on here before, including the beware of bear sign, the sign asking you to prevent forest fires, the water system mascot sign (at the bottom of the page in the link), and this sign proclaiming Toyooka to be a town of bags. Here’s some more fun signs!

This sign says Kids House No. 110. Its a government program to help keep kids safe. People in the community volunteer to have this sign posted outside their house, or put a sticker in the window. Homes displaying the No. 110 emblem are supposed to be safe havens for kids to go to when they are in trouble.

Mr. Cool Frog says, "Dont toss trash into the river! The river is for everyone and we should all protect it together."

At the construction site, the sign politely bows to me to apologize for any inconvenience.

Isnt this manhole a bit too cute? It has characters from the Yamata no Orochi legend, in which the god Susano slays the great Orochi serpent.

On a train with no glass windows, a sign telling everyone not to stick out their hands or head because its dangerous.
