Japanese railway signals, according to the ministerial decree defining technical standards of railways (鉄道に関する技術上の基準を定める省令, Tetsudō ni kansuru gijutsu jō no kijun wo sadameru shōrei?), are defined as indicating operational conditions for railway staff driving trains.
Japanese signalling was initially based on British railway signalling, and Japanese railway signalling continues to be based on the UK route signalling system. However, as signalling has advanced to meet the requirements of the system (and due to the influence of the United States), the Japanese signalling system is a mixture of route signalling and American speed signalling.

Famous quotes containing the words signals, japanese and/or railway:
“The term preschooler signals another change in our expectations of children. While toddler refers to physical development, preschooler refers to a social and intellectual activity: going to school. That shift in emphasis is tremendously important, for it is at this age that we think of children as social creatures who can begin to solve problems.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
“In fact, the whole of Japan is a pure invention. There is no such country, there are no such people.... The Japanese people are ... simply a mode of style, an exquisite fancy of art.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understandmy mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arms length.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
