a building in the middle of the highway

Is it a joke???

Itīs not a joke!!!

Is it a Google Earth mistake?'

Thereīs no mistake, in any way!!

Is it possible??

Itīs possible in the country where itīs built!!

And where is it?

In the center of Osaka, Japan.

During the years 80, the municipality of Osaka needed the little "land" situated where the building today take place, for the construction of the highway. The owner didnīt want to sell it at any price. Even, he wanted to construct a new building. thatīs the reason why...

Every problem got a solution.

At any moment, the highway touch the walls of the building. No vibrations, any noise or sounds, thereīs a kind of tunel around the highway.

By the way, nobody live in the building,itīs only offices.

if you got PANORAMIO in your Google Earth, click on one of them called "confluence" situated at the top of this round building.Very impressive!

Another way: on your Toolbar, write "http://www.lejapon.org/forum/showthread.php?t=9556". itīs a french blog, but you donīt need to speak the Moličre language to see a couple of photos of the building-highway.
