N and I got back from Japan a few weeks ago, and we’ve finally gotten the pictures posted. If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll send you a link to the whole collection.
For now though, here are some samples of some of the good ideas, bad ideas, and funny signs we saw.
Starting with the funny signs…
No camping, lighting fires, or…actually, while we’re at it, just stay out altogether.
If we just had more signs like this one, the world would be a better place.
No! It’s fine, our food won’t hurt you. Really!
I won’t hurt you either, I’m a gentle fellow. Look, I have a sign.
Being 6‘6” tall, this one hit close to home.
No danger allowed here folks. No danger allowed.
For that matter, no pipe smoking is allowed either. Because lots of Japanese smoke pipes.
In Japan newspapers will not have FEAR!
It’s important to use doors willingly.
Moving onto the good and bad Japanese ideas….
Check out the screen, that’s a camera mounted on the bottom of the plane.
This woman sits and polishes and cleans empty plastic bags. All. Day. Long. Recycling at its best/worst.
Look closely at these bikes. They can fit two kids on the bike itself. No trailers, not frills. Just useful, functional bikes.
OK, these are the worst idea ever. The Christians put a cross into the blade of the scissor. So much for having scissors that actually work.
Check this out: Not only do florescent bulbs glow in the dark, but night lights are built into most overhead lights.
Japan takes apples seriously. Judge the wisdom yourself, I suppose.
They’ve done it. They’ve made a silent fridge for hotel rooms.
On the other hand, they’ve tamed deer. This is a terrible idea. Deer are annoying. See here for details.
And finally, an umbrella rack with locks and keys, so everybody gets their umbrella back. What a crazy concept.
I love getting feedback and comments. Make my day by making a comment.
