Beware of chikan with claws

Even though Japan is generally such an orderly country, there are many warning signs telling people how to be careful and how to behave.  I found this sign at the entrance to Kita-in Temple in Kawagoe last weekend.  It says to be careful of chikan (perverts) and bag snatchers – but apparently, only the ones with sharp claws.  It’s good to see community minded people warning us all of local dangers.

Beware of perverts and bag snatchers with sharp claws

Followers of this blog know that I like a good warning sign (here, here and here), and especially expressive hand-drawn ones at that.  (I’ve cut off the bottom of the sign from the photo, but it gave advice about keeping out of the shadows at night, etc.)
