  1. Hihi, the signs are so cute and unique! Nice searching!!v(^o^)v
    Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Signs seem to be inspired by cartoon.A funny way of showing restriction in Japan.

  3. The signs are definitely different and they capture attention; it’s a great way to communicate a message and therefore they probably work really well. I haven’t been to Japan, but if all the signs are in a caricaturist format, they may be overwhelming and actually lose their impact. However, I like them; maybe we should try using cartoon drawings for some of our campaign messages. Thanks for sharing Ovi!
