For the sake of irreplaceable persons
Silly-English sign in a Japanese optomitrist

Processing some pre-cold, pre-trip photos, I came across this little gem of a sign in an eyeglasses shop in Yamashina, Kyoto, Japan, which I took while stopping by with a friend who was getting an eye exam.

It may be a bit hard to read due to the reflections, but it says:

A professional art-raising the quality and
controlling the price.Unique ideas and
techniques made impossible things possible.


For the sake of irreplaceable persons, we'll dramatize a specially preserved extravagance.

I couldn't have said it better myself!


One comment so far...
