Musical Rumble Strips On Road Play Tune For Drivers In Japan

How cool is this? Along a section of the Subaru highway leading up to Mount Fuji in Japan there are special rumble strips that have been placed along the roadway that play a song when driven across.

“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,” writes the videographer on Rumble. “‘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.”

As the videographer indicates, the musical road in Japan is not the only one. There are several roads throughout the country. According to wikipedia, the roads work by creating high and low frequency vibrations caused by “sequences of variable width grooves”.

Musical roads can be found in other countries as well including Denmark, South Korea, the United States, China, San Marino, Taiwan, and the Netherlands.
