People with a poor sense of direction

Yamada Zenjido's
LANGUAGES AVAILABLE: 日本語 한국어 简体字 繁體字 ภาษาไทย Bahasa Indonesia

"I have a map but I still do not know where I am going!" Does this sound familiar? Are you always getting lost?

方向音痴あるある  篇
Have you had a chance to see any of Yamada Zenjido's Ukiyo-e inspired illustrations? The series looks at some of the "little things" in life that everyone can relate to! The images in this edition focus on people with a poor sense of direction! Do you always seem to get lost even when you have a map? If you are someone with a poor sense of direction, perhaps you can relate to some of these scenarios!


\ Forgetting which side you came in from after exiting the shopping mall restroom! /

\ Believing in your sixth sense... /

"Alright, I'll go left!"

(turns out you were wrong)

\ It takes ages for you to realize you're on the wrong path... /


Where am I??

Why is there a river?
