In September a friend took this photograph in XX Hospital in Sapporo and many foreigners on the Internet/Facebook were enjoying the joke..."Reincarnation" means you die and come back for a second life in another body. The person who made this sign looked in a dictionary for the English for 再来 and chose this word instead of the better translation "Returning Patients".
It is a wonderful sign for a hospital. Bad English. But funny.
Last week Ayako, an Imagine student, was sitting in a hospital lobby....and found this sign...with a piece of paper stuck to it.
She remembered me showing her the original photograph (she works in a DIFFERENT hospital) and kindly took this photo...the sign is having reincarnation now!
