Anti-smoking campaign, Japanese style



This poster is the most recent example I've seen of indescribably wonderful Japanese signage. I found it via present simple, a blog I enjoy very much; it's by an English teacher from New Zealand, now living in Japan. She writes really well. (And SHE got it from Funky Drummer, another Japanese site.)

If you like this kind of thing you have probably already visited Engrish.com, but if you, like me, can't keep up, well all we can do is do the best we can. This is a Smallville-esque platitude of the kind collected by Omar G., brilliant but merciless auteur at "Television Without Pity."

Just a little correction; my photo was not of an anti smoking camaign, it was an 'anti dropping your cigarette butts and ash in the snow' campaign.

It�s a really good effort. I have never been addicted to tobacco, but I know how it�s dangerous and how it can effect to ones� body. Those who want to quite smoking they can use chantix, I think it�s a good one.
