The Rumble Strips On The Road To Mt Fuji Play A Song

This is a video of a trip along the subaru highway leading to Mount Fuji, Japan that plays a song when driven across. You know the streets in my neighborhood play a song too. It's called 'Potholes Make Your Wheels Fall Off.'

This section of the subaru highway leading up to Mount Fuji have rumble strips in the middle of the road that have been spaced at certain intervals to play a song. It's very unique and impressive - take a listen. "Miagete goran yoru no hoshi wo" by Kyu Sakamoto is the name of the tune. ...There are three stretches of road in japan which do this.

I mean, of course Japan has musical highways, why wouldn't they? Meanwhile I can't roller skate down the street I live on wearing my short shorts without risking tripping on a pothole or falling in a manhole because some hooligans stole the cover. I've already met the Ninja Turtles twice, they're really not that cool in real life.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Carly, who wants to live on a road that plays a perfectly recreated Back To The Future soundtrack when driving at 88MPH.

    Music rumble strips on the road yet they couldn't figure out driving on the right side of the road...

  • That looks like the right side of the road to me.

    music you can feel with your butt.

    I don't know what kind of butt you have but my butt tends to feel the music once it hits a certain decibel level.

    Route 66 near Tijeras, NM plays "America the Beautiful" in the same fashion.
