Kanji Kanban Japanese Sign #103-Train Station Cell Phone Safety

DSC03533

あっ!あぶないですよ!!

ケータイに夢中になって歩く行為 お酒に酔ってのちどり歩き

列車接触などにより、思わぬ大けがにつながる恐れがあります。また、電車に遅れが生じ、多くのお客さまにご迷惑が掛かります。

2010年度に発生した人者事故などにより、東急線全線で

約500,000人の方に影響が及びました。

Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading this poster that I saw on a trip to Tokyo late last year at a station operated by Tokyu Dentetsu,  a major private railway.  Click on the photo to enlarge it to see the characters more clearly.

ちどり is a type of small bird, a plover in English, and ちどり歩き is a colorful expression for describing the way people often walk when they’re tipsy.  A common variation is ちどり足.  If you’re talking about your recent exploits and are recalling how you stumbled home,  you might wind it up by saying  千鳥足で帰った or 千鳥歩きで帰った.

ちどり is often written with the kanji 千鳥, which literally means one thousand birds.  Restaurants sometimes take this name, and it’s also the name of a traditional motif found on various fabrics, a small repeat pattern of a simply drawn bird.

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.
