Kanji Kanban Japanese Sign #268-Water Repellent Shoes





Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading these characters.  This store’s display reminded me that the rainy season(梅雨 or つゆ, literally ‘plum rain’) will be here before I know it.

In the Kinki region of Japan which includes Kyoto and Osaka, 梅雨 usually starts in early June and ends in mid July.  Though it doesn’t rain every day, water repellent shoes can sometimes come in handy!

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.
