While the world is being amazed by Japan’s technological skills (like working on the new Maglev magnet-based shinkansen technology!), it’s still the little things that make us love Japan’s transportation priorities. Like, for example, the recent installation of turtle paths to keep these cute little guys from getting wedged under trains and dying and/or causing delays and accidents.
This collaboration between the Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe and the West Japan Railway Company has allowed the turtles to pass freely under the tracks, solving their problem and making for really cute sight in the meanwhile.
