My original linked to a buzzfeed with a bunch of poorly translated signs. I realized some contained very sexual language. But here are some good ones from the site:


(fire extinguisher)


(Carp from mainland China)


(ethnic minority park)


(do not step on living grass)


(don't drink and drive)

Richmond BC was my inspiration to begin my 7 year odyssey to learn how to read kanji characters.
i am still studying, but it is extremely difficult to think Asian, and that is what is required.

their symbolic system is so NOT similar to syllabic or phonetic writing/thinking.

needless to say, after 7 years of study, i can barely read any Chinese or Japanese. BUT I AM STILL STUDYING!
it is very fun!

one thing is for sure, after all this effort to learn to read kanji, i have developed a very healthy respect for Chinese and Japanese people that have taken the time to learn our system and still know their own.

they make me look like a kindergarten kid.
