Kanji Reading Practice #44 – Park Signs 階段注意
Another sign that you may see an any type of park, or public, place in Japan. The sign may not look exactly like this one, but I’m sure there are other signs out there that say the same thing. Sometimes it is difficult to go to public places in Japan if you have small toddlers, or if you are disabled. It seems that Japan is getting better at accommodating the disabled, but I think they have a long way to go.
