Kanji Reading Practice #16 – Signs!

This should be an easy Kanji Reading Practice, as all the kanji are below level 13 on WaniKani. I ran into this sign while walking through a park area. Why do I do this? Well, I believe that practicing reading the kanji that you have finished reviewing (or ‘burned’ as they call it on WaniKani) will help you to keep that kanji in your memory. There are a lot of kanji that I have burned, and then forgotten. You have to see things again and again and again to remember them. The explanation of the kanji follows the photo below.
