When I was in Japan, one of thing that took my attention, and probably you guys would be the same, was the Japanese way of warning signs. Different from the other countries, on the Japanese warning signs you wouldn’t see how much you’d be charged if you broke the rules or those kind of pictures that make you confuse about the meaning sometimes. On the other hand, the Japanese who are well-known for their creativity, makes their warning signs with lots of funny pictures on it. The Japanese government really make a full use of the anime or cartoon characters that is one of the most attracting aspects of Japan to be put on the warning signs, so it’d look funny and attracting of course. Moreover, another thing that distinct the Japanese warning signs is the warnings that warn us even for the small, unnoticed things that maybe some of us consider it unimportant and make it looks like really care about us. Therefore, we are going to see now how creative the Japanese people are in making the warning signs..
In Japan, you could find the warning signs almost everywhere, such as on the street, on the train and subway, on the stairs, and many more. The type of the warning signs are also diverse, there are posters, stickers, or even a board beside the street.
Apart from the hilarity, those signs are really easy to understand, don’t they? Though most of the warning signs that you could find in Japan would be written in Japanese, all of the message and the warning on the signs could be delivered through their own funny and creative pictures. Moreover, having this kind of pictures as the warning signs surely would steal your attention to read the signs. I guess the Japanese government really do a good job in transforming the usual boring warning signs to become one of the special things that you could only find in Japan. Saluuut for the Japanese government!!!
