Geocache Description:

UMEDA SHINMICHI Kousaten Interesection is a point of origin or destination of various National Roads in Osaka.

Route 1 from Tokyo to here
Route 25 from Yokkaichi to here
Route 176 from Miyazu to here
Route 2 from here to Fukuoka
Route 26 from here to Wakayama
Route 163 from here to Tsu
Route 165 from here to Tsu

Not only National Roads, but there are actually three railroads are passing right underneath the intersection. Amazing.
Subway Misdosuji line, Tanimachi line and JR Tozai line. Indeed, subway Tanimachi line makes a steep turn from Route 1 to Route 176!! Hang on!

All the things above are barely noticeable unless you carefully look into wiki Web page or Google map. Its reality is just another busy street crossing in the City.

A cache is placed at somewhere near the south west corner of the Intersection. It is right on the pedestrian walkway. Not on the auto lanes. So please remain on the walkway when you search.

I know, the GPS signal will be bumpy due to tall buildings around. The cache has been beta-tested at the position more than a month. So it should survive, I believe. The cache is placed in your sight.

There are full of muggles day and night. You have to pick it up and put it back in total stealth and lightening quick!
