Seen and Heard on The Limousine Coach to Narita

Flashing across the electronic sign at the front of the bus...

Please inform the driver when you see a suspicious thing and a suspicious person.

Heard on the recorded announcement made by a pleasant-sounding female voice...

Portable telephones should not be used on the bus as they annoy the neighbors.

Oh, and the label on the free cookie snack in our room at the Narita Hilton...


The secret to a cake is the best selectedand freshest ingredients. "Good Taste" is our theme when we make our cakes, this is to broaden relations between people.

That's one ambitious snack food.

And finally, a notice on the hair dryer in the bathroom of our room...

Please do not use for the other purpose except for drying your hair.

What other purpose, inquiring minds ask. Engrish, anyone? Seriously, we're laughing with them, not at them. Their English is infinitely better than our Japanese.

We'll take the shuttle back to Narita Airport early this afternoon, keeping an eye out for a suspicious thing and a suspicious person all the way.
