Japrish: The Cowardly Cleaner

This, the third photo in the Japrish image compilation (my own version of Engrish) was spotted in a shopping mall in Fukuoka.

Japrish (my Engrish) Pansy Cleaning in Japan

The cowardly dry cleaner.

The writing above PANSY says “kuriiningu” or cleaning. This place is a Dry Cleaner, they chose the unfortunate name of PANSY… or are they trying to insult me?

I have lots of fun spotting Japrish (Japanese that has been badly translated to English, my own version of Engrish) whilst travelling in Japan. As well as taking photos of normal tourist things and anything that catches my eye, I’m always on the lookout for interesting Japrish.
