Looking for some good Japanese food as a change of place from the roadside burger or dog (hot)? Then follow this sign to Tokyo Garden. Can't vouch for the food, but the signs are nice, especially at night.

The Far East Cafe in Bakersfield features a sign that's a cross between a standard blade sign and a pagoda cutout. In either case, the Far East is a welcome respite from the cookie cutter signage of today.

Here's a shot of the Far East Cafe from a few years ago.
