Odd Japanese Blogs – The Pedestrian Overpass Blog

Today’s blog is the third of five himajin blogs that I’m writing about this week. It’s called the Nagoya Hodoukyou Dagaya! (The Nagoya Pedestrian Overpass Blog).

Here’s a typical post:

Jingumae Koen Park Pedestrian Overpass


Hataya 1-chome, Atsuta-ku, Nagoya

There is one set of stairs on each side of the overpass. There is no flat area for bicycles on the stairs. It is the closest overpass to Atsuta Koen Park and the Atsuta Baseball Field. If you look from the park, the overpass is to the east. There are a lot of temples around it.

Amount of traffic under overpass:  ★★★☆☆
Amound of pedestrian traffic: ★★★☆☆
Necessity: ★★☆☆☆
Uniqueness: ★☆☆☆☆
Age: From Sept. 69

So far, we’ve seen the Tokyo Stairs Database, the Vending Machine Report and the QR Code Blog. Tomorrow is the Telekinesis Blog!
