Lost in Translation: Japanese signs

Making signs in a language you are not comfortable with is not always easy. Even google translate can fail sometimes, and the results can be hilarious. Finding funny signs in Japan is not difficult at all. Some are clearly mistranslations, others have a hidden meaning somewhere in there. Here are some Japanese Signs I have found on my travels.

Japanese Signs

So if you walk normally, it won’t attack?

I am returning to Japan in a few months and will be on the lookout for more funny signs? Have you found any on your travels? Please share.
