Whether it's the radio, a CD or an in-car music streaming service, many drivers like to have their journeys set to the tune of a pleasing song—but the Ashinoko Skyline in Japan completely changes what it means to listen to music on the road.
In celebration of Golden Week, a portion of this private toll road has been turned into a place to listen to a song from the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime when a car is driven over the pavement. Over the stretch of about 350 yards, the musical road creates a tactile vibration and rumbling that comes through the body and wheels of the car, set to the tune of the iconic anime song. Located in the city of Hakone, this is an area where Evangelion fans commonly gather, since it is where some of the anime takes place.
