Which Way?

A's recent post made me realize that I need to do a better job of documenting unique things that are already seeming very normal to me.

It's a bit difficult to see, but if you look to the left of the red traffic light, and then a little above the "blue" traffic light, you see signs that appear to be street signs. Except that they both read Issha S. (Issha South in the kanji). I was very confused by all of the intersections where these duplicate street signs appeared until I asked a Japanese speaking friend who said that these aren't the names of the streets at all, but rather are letting you know of a nearby destination, in this case it's the nearby Issha subway/bus station.
