Thanks for this amusing post, Steve. Too bad they are cleaning up the signs but it's probably understandable! They are doing their best to look like a country that is acquainted with the rest of the world.

I don't know if you are aware of Engrish.com, which focuses on the interesting uses of English in Japan. Many of these are "alternate usages" of English instead of misuses... Japanese English is quite different! I go to this site whenever I am in need of cheering up - it never fails to make me laugh out loud.
