Japan the Otaku show: Yokohama’s famous fried penis
Originally posted on Danny Choo’s Facebook page.
This sign says Chinchin Yaki or simply Fried Penis. Not too sure why this sign has fried penis on it or even what it would be for.
Nevertheless, it’s another wacky sign that we just love to see. Also a great little picture to teach some Japanese!
The breakdown is ち=chi ん=n
焼=yaki. Translation breakdown: ちんちん=slang for penis 焼=fried.

Yokohama (横浜市 Yokohama-shi) ” Side Shore”
the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture and the second largest city in Japan by population after Tokyo and most populous municipality of Japan. It lies on Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo, in the Kantō region of the main island of Honshu. It is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area.
Yokohama’s population of 3.6 million makes it Japan’s largest incorporated city.
Yokohama developed rapidly as Japan’s prominent port city following the end of Japan’s relative isolation in the mid-19th century, and is today one of its major ports along with Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya, Hakata, Tokyo, and Chiba.
