Japanese train station signs

15Jun09

Everything in this country is cuter: clothes, cars, people, sings… everything. Sometimes it’s a bit too much, like the stands selling cell phone decorations, but most of the time the cuteness is very endearing. Train stations are a good example, here’s some signs on the train line between Chiba and Tokyo.

This is a play on words, it says something like "Don't rush in!!" but two characters form the word eggplant. Too cute.

I love the piston diagram.

Don't let your sandals get stuch in the escalator.

Don't let your sandals get stuck in the escalator.

Don't let your hand get stuck in the door! Why are there little animals? I suppose just because they're cute.

There are lots of photos on my camera, and Mariz has some pretty great shots from her time in Tokyo. Stay tuned for more blog posts from Japan!

  1. Awesome photos/post. I figure the last sign depicts animals laughing at people who get their hand stuck in the door, as further discouragement. (-:

    The piston action is awesome. When it starts raining here again I’m gonna use every opportunity to refer to my umbrella shaft as a piston!
