Kanji Kanban Japanese Sign #263-Kyoto Kamogawa River Nutria

ヌートリアにエサをあげないでください

エサをあげるとドンドン増えて

貝などの生き物もたくさん食べられてしまいます

ヌートリアは、もともと南アメリカにすんでいた大きいなネズミで、とてもたくさん子供を産みます。

鴨川に昔からいる生き物が減ったり、畑の野菜を食べて人に迷惑をかけたりします。

エサをやっていて指をかまれると、ケガをしたり、病気になったりして大変です。

Nutria are native to South America and were introduced to Japan.  We took these photos along Kyoto’s Kamogawa(鴨川) River recently.

It seems as though Kyoto City has stepped up its campaign to eradicate them,  and this sign is part of that effort.  It asks people not to feed them and details the harm that they do to native species of plants and animals and warns of the risk of getting bitten, and is written in a way that children as well can understand and take to heart.

I’m not sure about how long they’ve been here or how they were introduced-a lady we met by the river who was watching a nutria told us that the Japanese military had them brought to Japan and used their fur to make collars for uniforms during wartime,  releasing them when they were no longer needed. But I don’t know for sure if that’s actually what happened.

I’d be curious to know of any other explanations that you’ve come across! In any event it looks like the city is having some success with their program, so if you want to see a nutria in Kyoto, better get out there!  I seem to most often see them, usually just one or sometimes two, just north of the Imadegawa Bridge on the west side of the river.  That’s where this sign is.

It’s one of two I noticed that were produced by Kyoto’s Doshisha University to encourage students to protect their bicycles against theft and be more attentive while riding.

I highlighted the other poster in Kanji Kanban #255.  This one, focused on safe cycling,  points out the dangers of inattentive cycling, and includes a reminder that using headphones and cell phones while cycling is in fact illegal.
