We go outside of Fukuoka for today’s feature.
A series of “melody roads” in Gunma Prefecture in central Japan play out a tune as you drive over them…just in case you forgot to bring your CD collection for that Silver Week trip you had been planning for so long. Instructions by the roadside tell motorists to drive at exactly 50 km/h to hear the melody in this 175 meter stretch of road. The music is caused by ridges on the road which make a sound as tires run over them. Too bad they didn’t use the super-silent Toyota Prius for this video.
