To refresh your memory (we'll pretend you've read everything I've ever written religiously, of course), it is rather cool here, Japan, and probably other Asian countries to have things written in English. Think of the prevelence of kanji tattoos that people have in the US - same kind of thing. However, being that a vast majority of the population can't read what it says, it tends to not make much sense. This is known as Engrish.
(As an aside I read an article once on how a Japanese tattoo artist in the US was tattooing the wrong thing on people. On a girl's stomach he tattooed "Insert General Tso's chicken here" and on a big burly guy that wanted strength or some other macho man thing on his arm, he tattooed I like to wear women's underwear or something like that. Kind of funny, if you think about it. Internet people, internet. If you must follow this trend, find what you want it to say on several different sites, then take it to someone who knows the language and ask them what it says without telling them to make sure you've got it right. Geez.)
So I bring you my Engrish collection thus far. Some are better than others, and they're not all strictly Engrish - I added ones of signs and stuff that I thought were just written interestingly which could be Engrish or could be cultural. Oh, and the best Engrish of all time is at the end, so keep reading. I've retyped what things say in case it's not easy to tell from the smaller pictures - all quotes are, of course, exactly what the original says. ;)
First, we have a full wall sign outside a bar:
Can one ever remember love..It's like trying to summom up the smell of rose in acellar. tou might see arose, but never the perfume.
Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but look together in the same direction.In the alley by my apartments:
On a shirt:
The trashcan in my bathroom:
Not really Engrish at all:
A pencil sharpener/eraser combo (that refused to take a decent picture):
In my subway station:
On a hoodie (taken with my camera phone. Must remember to always have camera when I go shopping here):
On a store window (also taken with my camera phone, which really doesn't help trying to read it):
On the subway:
And the best Engrish of all time, on a t-shirt someone bought (I would have bought one myself):
So that's what I have so far. Hope you have enjoyed. :)
