>It would seem logical that because the game originated from Japan, and if the plaque did say something, it would most likely be written in Japanese. Are you forgetting the tiles in the Shifting Sand Land pyramid as well? They say "ET".
I know kana/hira, and there's no way this sign is written in Japanese. Japanese writing is more stocky/blocky and compact. This sign looks more like cursive handwriting. The top line may say what we think it says, but the other line is quite the mystery.
