Signs and Sayings

Miscommunication is one of my favorite studies. The study of what not to say. Needless to say, English translations are not always accurate (and neither is autocorrect, which made “translations” into “tea blasting”..), but the more wrong they are, the funnier. Which is why on my ski trip today in Fukui prefecture’s Ski Jam, I couldn’t help but capture this treasure.
