Pippi and I found this sign in Arisugawa Park the other day. So poetic in English. So ominous in Japanese ("beware of crows" might be a better translation). I once had a friend who was attacked by a crow while running in a Tokyo park. And when the girls were little, we were often warned about toddlers having snacks snatched right from their tiny hands by the big, black birds. They certainly look menacing yet I don't really notice them anymore. But thanks to this sign I will look skyward more often.
