Kanji Reading Practice #38 – Hiking Signs 路肩注意
Here is another sign that you may encounter in the Japan outdoors while hiking. Or even driving, if you are adventurous enough to drive on the tiny roads with steep cliffs and falling rocks, while trying to find another mountain to hike. I am always nervous driving on roads like that. Not only because of the falling rocks, or steep drop offs at the road’s edge, but because there is not much you can do if you meet a vehicle coming in the opposite direction. Sure, some of these roads will have tiny little spots on the roads where it widens enough for two cars to pass, but sometimes there are a good distance from each other. This means one of the vehicles will have to back up to get to the area that is wider so that one vehicle can get by the other.
