これは、周辺地区の急傾斜地の崩壊の危険についての看板なのですが、すでに看板自体が傾斜して崩壊しかけています…なんだかそれだけでも怖いですね。

    I’m not sure if I get it, but I think that this is what you’re saying: It’s a sign warning about danger of crumbling because of the steep incline, and it’s scary that the sign its self is at an incline and is crumbling.

    What I’m not sure about is the 急傾斜地 (kyuukeishaji?). Is it just things built on an incline are more likely to fall apart? I don’t see any signs like there where I live, but it’s mostly flat here – maybe they have similar warnings in San Francisco or something.

    Pawel, I think you got what I wrote very well.
    Kyuukeishachi means, mmm, hilly area or cliff(?). It doesn’t matter things built on or not.

    I can not remember when, but there used to be a mudslide here after a typhoon. The road was covered with earth and rocks for some days.
