Today, I had to translate some instructions on how to use these panels. They’re called 顔ハメパネルin Japanese, and I have since found out that they can be called “face in hole (boards),” “face hole cutouts,” “photo cutouts,” etc., in English. But at first, I didn’t know what they were called, so I decided to try Google translate in the hope that it might offer me a clue as to how it could be translated, and the result has been making me laugh all day. Give it try (lol), but be warned that the result might offend those who are overly sensitive!
I can’t wait for the day I travel to some obscure sightseeing spot, way off the beaten track somewhere in Japan, where the owner of one these panels decided to rely on Google translate!
