Mt Fuji in Engrish

Attached to the door of the toilet stall at the fifth station on the north side of Mount Fuji, a lovely sample of Engrish. Eight sentences, actually comprehensible, although it sometimes accidentally says the opposite of what it is trying to say, and sometimes you have only vocabulary to guess the meaning, no grammar at all. Two of my favorite expressions: DIES FROM THE STRONG WIND WHICH DOES NOT ATTACH ANTICIPATION, and the unnecessarily superfluous redundancy of INSUFFICIENT SHORTAGE OF TECHNOLOGY.
