Unhappy How do I know if my tires are directional or non directional?

I want to rotate my tires, but, dont know if my tires are directional or not (As you know the direction of the rotation depends on this.)
How do I find this out? is there a sign on the tire?

You will see an arrow on the tire that says "Rotation".

Directional tires should say Rotation on the sidewall and have an arrow which shows which the direction they are designed to rotate. Otherwise you can rotate your tires on the same side of the car - move the LF to LR, RF to RR.

Yokohama tires. I've attached a sign I found on it. All the tires bear this sign.

Rotate front to rear. Do not make an "X" pattern.
