Tsukuba Japenglish

Author: Philip Nemenzo, Issue: October 2006, Topic: Humour

Engrish.com (http://www.engrish.com) has been on top of my bookmarked websites for many years, and not surprisingly, Tsukuba is also awash with its own version of Engrish. With camera in hand, one needs only a few hours in Tsukuba Center and its environs to capture some of the best and most hilarious Engrish in Japan.

This week, allow me to begin a series on Tsukuba’s own Japenglish with this photo below:

I never knew that in Matsushiro there’s a place where you can specifically buy pigs. Check out the Matsushiro Shoppig Center!

If you're in trouble with your spouse, or worse, with the law, there's no better place to go. Here, you'll be incognito, surrounded by the perfect ambiance for a sumptuous Japanese-style meal.

Make no mistake: it's not your best hiding place, it's your ONLY hiding place.

Located at Sakura Technopark, beside BookOff.

Feel free to contribute to this series. If you’re not signed up to Tsukublog as a contributing blogger, please send your digital photo to me (tpbnt(a)yahoo(dot)com) and I will be glad to post it for you -- with your byline, of course!
