Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading the signs on this hospital door. I noticed them when I was visiting a friend recently.
This room is for patients and their families for use when they’re in need of a private place to discuss things, and it’s named accordingly. If the room’s vacant, the side showing in the the photo will face out, and before closing the door behind them, someone will turn it over to show that it’s in use, so they won’t be disturbed. Can you guess what characters are on the other side? The answer is at the bottom of the text in this post.
The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
