Just Don’t Go There…


A typical old but vividly expressive sign as commonly seen in Japan. These old signs always seem to be one-offs, and I’m speculating they were handpainted back in the day, before mass-reproduction of standardized signs became the norm.

More to come in future posts.

This one hangs, fading and rusting, on the opposite side of the tracks at some reasonably remote station in the outer Tokyo area. And as with most of these vintage signs, it gets its message across quite effectively.

Don’t go there. Just don’t go there.
