Abstract The Enshu coast is located on the Southern side of Honshu island (Japan). The western part of the coast, so-called Omotehama, spans from Irago Cape to the mouth of the Tenryu River. The shoreline has been subjected to significant erosion, at a rate close to 1 m per year for past centuries. Along the Japanese shorelines, the tsunami warning signs are reminders of the natural hazards together with a network of warning sirens, typically at the top of the cliff of surroundings hills. This contribution presents a variety of tsunami warning signs along the Enshu Coast. The diversity of the warning signs is interesting. All signs have explicative graphics and a number have warning texts in Japanese, English and Portuguese, because there is a relatively large Brazilian community in the nearby Aichi Prefecture.
