Sunday's Silly Sign (Photo)

I decided to start posting a sign a week and Sunday sounds like a good day to do it.  It should help me keep my eyes open and I'll have to make sure I shoot a new photo of a sign, somewhere, at least once a week.

There are interesting, funny and even hilarious signs all over Japan and I think you could make a fortune correcting the English on some of them.

But, you never know. Many of them could have been misspelled deliberately. I do things like that, right here on my blog just to let that Spelchek Dude know who's the boss around here, sometimes.

This sign is at the top of a stairway on the Zakimi Castle wall in Yomitan Okinawa, Japan.  It lets you know, if you don't pay attention, you could fall all the way back down the stairs, I guess.

Or, it could be a warning to people who might want to lean too far over the wall once they reach the top. They could fall outside the castle walls and the UNESCO folks probably don't want to get involved in a bunch of lawsuits.

Are there silly signs like this at UNESCO Castles anywhere else in the world or only in Japan, I wonder ?

Maybe it's a warning that summertime is coming to an end??

Nah, it's always summertime here. We just have cooler and hotter days depending on which way the wind blows.
