Kanji Reading Practice #32 – Park Signs 落石注意

I labeled this Kanji Reading Practice as “Park Signs” because that is the mostly place that you will see a sign like this. You will see some of the kanji used here on signs in other places; like recent hiking signs that I have posted. I also left the English on this sign. While leaving the English on there will give away the reason for the sign; there is a lot more going on with the Japanese on this sign that what the English translation says. Kanji Reading Practice #32 – Park Signs 落石注意 has kanji from WaniKani levels 43 and below. As twelve of the 13 kanji used here are level 30 and below; I tagged it at 30 and below as well.
