  4. That Japnees part is the only one I can read but it certainly makes me wonder if the other words have such big errors in them too. Hilarious stuff.

  7. Such an odd sign in an odd place! And it seems quite weatherbeaten too! Great shot!

  9. Okay, so I have to ask... are the hairdressers Japanese or are they Indians who specialise in Japanese-style hair dos? ;b

  12. didnt think a japanese salon will have a poster such as this..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Heh, heh. From the looks of their sign, I'm not sure I'd want them cutting my hair - it might turn out all ragged!

    Have a great weekend!

  14. The sign maker needs spell-check.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Funny words on that sign! Great for this theme.

    Thanks for visiting mine and have a nice weekend.

  16. I've also thought of posting words I don't understand from different places...this one is great.

  17. the banner doesn't looks cool for a Japanese salon.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Cool! Considering how tattered the sign is, I bet the hair "derssers" aren't new anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  19. They should have used 'spell check'! Great photo.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What an interesting sign!! great shot for the theme.

    Very cool treatment of the theme.

  28. Looks like owner needs to paint a brand new signboard pretty soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Somebody need to learn the correct spelling first! lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. yours is the first blog on Mumbai life i've come across. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I always love to see what Mumbai has to offer through your camera lens, every week!

    ReplyDelete
  32. a new sign board is in order :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Awesome take, I love the essence of the shot. It's interesting to note that the "signboard" was actually over another signboard. And the fact that it's such a huge contrast with what one might think of a Japanese salon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Very old looking signboard indeed! I would love to visit Mumbai one day!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great shot for the hunt.

    THanks for visiting.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great photo! Love all the misspelt words.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I never realized how close the Marathi "alphabet" is to the Hindi one. They're virtually the same it looks like!

    Love this photo, the torn banner makes a compelling image -- even more than a whole one would have.

    Sorry to have been away for so long, but sometimes life intrudes. Hopefully I'll catch up now!
