Seen outside Yamcha's hideout. 千錘百煉 stands [roughly] for the belief that something needs to be worked on, over and over again to be able to improve. It's a Chinese expression that can be translated as "Thoroughly tempered" but it literally means "100,000 Liang hammer", Liang being a unit of measurement.

Oolongshideout

First seen hanging over the entrance to Oolong's hide-out, and later on the side of his 'M' Capsule House-Wagon. However, in the latter, the kanji are reversed: 龍烏<->烏龍. It is read as "Wulong/Oolong" in Chinese. It is a type of Chinese tea. In Classical Chinese it would have been written from right to left.
