Random Japaense Trivia: Signs & Street Names/Numbers
This is a stop sign. The yield signs are the same size, shape and colors. The yield signs have more white and different characters. This makes it tough as a pedastrian, as you often can't see the FRONT of the sign when you come up to a cross walk, it's difficult to know if traffic has a stop or yield sign.
This sign is also unique in that it has a STREET name attached to it. Most the streets off base in Misawa do NOT have street names, and the buildings are numbered according to when they were BUILT and not how they are situated on a street.
I should have snapped a yield sign too....but the one I was about to snap had a sign below saying I was in a restricted area. ::snort::
