I'm pretty sure this is don't let your pets pee on the bridge.

Let me know if this photo is too big to load quickly on everyone's computers. I'll try to get a smaller size that's still readable.

Looks just fine here. Since the image is under 100k it should be fine for most users...

... part of me wonders if this is directed just at pets...

interesting words
におい smell
しみ stain
よごれ dirt

I believe the first construction is
何々に 何々 が付いてしまう something is stained with something.

おしっこをかける〔何々に〕urinate on, pee on (something)

personally I've found that おしっこ、and うんこ seem much more acceptable in speech (conversation) than their English counterparts. It could just be the people I know!

浅草寺 asakusa temple

you'd hope it wasn't humans directly responsible.

Does this mean scribbling on the sign itself or near here? Can you draw or sketch?

Wonder why they didn't put this in English? It seems to me that foreigners would be just as capable of washing their face in the water. ;)
