Japan - English language skills?

Ever since I lived in Korea, I have had an appreciation for the Asian enthusiasm for the English language. You see English writing all over the place. However there's often something lost in the translation. Please enjoy this pictures of a few words/phrases that made us smile.

On a different floor of this hotel this same door was labeled 'staff only.' Kenta and his mom laughed for a long time about the room that held 'stuff only.' What exactly would that exclude from being held in this room?
Appetizing, huh?

Next time you need to throw something away ask someone near you where the 'dust box' is and see what kind of a response you get.
If you read the blue print below the stick figures with various ailments, you find that unspecified 'internal disorders' will get you a special place on the train.
