Notice to Japanese Smokers: Stop Acting Like Cool Cowboys [Japrish]

I call it Japrish.

Some of my favourite signs are the JR smoking etiquette signs, which sound more like a riddle than a “do not smoke sign”. Aren’t old westerns cool?

See more of these Japrish smoking signs, like “painful stares” and “don’t be so calm“, both taken at Harajuku Station in Tokyo.
