To those who train at Hombu
Deleted_
Hi.

We find a lot of trash and garbage in & around the Dojo (railway side mainly) everytime we train there. This is really annoying.
Especially, the trash/garbage left around the Dojo can cause a problem between the Bujinkan and the neighborhood and/or Noda city.

So, please take your own trash and garbage home and don't leave anything there without permission.

If we see anyone of you throw trash/garbage away around the Dojo, you will be banned to use the Dojo again.

(Can anyone rewrite this message to a better English? We think this is very important because hundreds of people are coming soon.)

George,

I think your message is really clear. No need for a rewrite.

Seems to be about time you made a large sign in various languages stating the DONTS of the dojo from the slightly trivial adherence to shoe etiquette to what not to do with garbage! At least four languages should do it, Japanese, Spanish, French and American.

Sounds good.

Could anyone on this BBS help us with those languages?

But maybe we should make the whole thing in English first.
What should we include in the message?


TIA

Please do not litter.
Remove your garbage, and throw it away in a public trashcan, at a store entrance or train station.
No garbage recepticle is provided inside the Hombu Dojo.
Thank you for helping keep our facilities clean, and our neighbors happy.

George, I haven't used French in a long time but if you like what Doraemon wrote the translation is something along the lines of:

"S'il vous plait ne laissez aucun dechets au Hombu Dojo. Vous pouvez les mettre dans une poubelle souvent retrouvee proche d'un Depanneur ou a la station Atago. Votre cooperation est apprecie par le Dojo et la communaute de Noda. Merci."

The grammar might not be correct, but I think it's the right feeling.

Here goes the Spanish version:

"Por favor, no tiren basura en el Hombu Dojo y alrededores.
Recoja sus desperdicios y tírelos en una papelera pública, normalmente situadas a la entrada de almacenes comerciales o estaciones de tren. No existen recipientes para basura en el interior del Hombu Dojo.
Gracias por mantener limpias nuestras instalaciones, lo que conllevará asimismo la satisfacción de los vecinos."

Thanks a lot.

As for the Japanese version, 'ゴミはお持ち帰りください' will be enough, I hope.....


BTW, it was also March 15th when I joined the Bujinkan 12 years ago.

It might also be worth noting that Joji-san shouldn't have to go to the trouble of making such a sign, in any language, although I agree whole-heartedly that at this point in the game it's probably a good idea.

It is my opinion and understanding that foreign budoka visiting hombu should be briefed in no uncertain terms by their instructors BEFORE leaving their home country as to how they should behave once they are in Tokyo. I know that on my first trip to Tokyo, it was made very clear to me that my behaviour there would be a reflection on my instructor at home as well as myself.

This is part of the training, IMHO!

On the other hand, with the larger amounts of people training at hombu, it's very easy to assume that your (or my) one small act of littering or carelessness won't amount to much. This is clearly a trap which we all must strive to avoid and take responsibility for.

In an ideal world, the surrounding city of Noda wouldn't even know we were there, because we are training in ninjutsu, and not attending a frat party or something. If anything, we should each be trying to out-do the other in leaving the place (the dojo and the city alike) cleaner than we found it!

Intended with respect to all.
