Kanji Around Town

Sunday, October 02, 2005
I've been taking pictures of signs and other writing around town, I was hoping for a better set, but I've been sitting on some of these photos for almost two months now, so I'm just going to post what I've got. The writing is almost all Kanji, the Chinese-based characters with a 3,000 character alphabet, and a whole lot more that aren't included in that count. I can't read any of them, except for the fire box which says "hose-u (indecipherable kanji)." Either way, I like the way they look, and so enjoy.

On the ferry. It's an entrance for something.

Ferry again.

Around the island.

In front of my house.

Also in front of my house.

On my street.

In Takehara.

The abandoned bowling alley.
