The Firest Staff

There are many joys of living in (or visiting) Japan - the food, the people, the technology, the culture, the convenience, the fashion, and the list goes on. And Engrish. Oh yes, Engrish.

Sometimes it can be downright embarrassing, as in "Have they ever heard of a spell-checker?":

Sometimes, you're just not sure:

And sometimes, you simply have to scratch your head and go "WTF?":
Engrish again

But most of the time, it's really subtle. So subtle that if you've been here for a while, you don't even pay any attention anymore. It takes your freshly arrived friend to say, "Hmmm... I'm not sure I want to know what they do in there" for you to notice:

Man to man

And yeah, "Brain" IS a great name for an apartment complex. Why not?


And of course, no town is complete without its very own WonderGOO:
