Lost in Translation: Japanese signs

Making signs in a language you are not comfortable with is not always easy. Even google translate can fail sometimes, and the results can be hilarious. Finding funny signs in Japan is not difficult at all. Here are some I have found on my travels.

Smoking is a smoking place! And please don't smoke the temple!


I get the meaning, but.....


So if you walk normally, it won't attack?

I am returning to Japan in a few months and will be on the lookout for more funny signs? Have you found any on your travels? Please share.
