Close to Suizenji Koen, the wonderful Japanese garden in Kumamoto, we found a wonderful sign warning of perverts.
After visiting the garden and en route to the tram station on our way to Kumamoto Castle, we cut down a small alley off of the street lined with shops heading toward the entrance to Suizenji Koen.
At the end of the alley was a wonderful sign alerting us to the possibility of the dreaded "chikan," or molester.
The wolf growling at us warns:
"Beware of molesters!"
The sign was placed there by the local PTA and an anti-crime group.
