During the screening process, we came across the following nominations.


Title of the Wayspot:竣工記念碑

City: 佐川町


Country: 日本


Looking at the street view, the object is clearly a bridge nameplate.

It contains the month and date of the bridge's construction, as well as the name of the bridge (which can be seen on the other side of the object), and is a mass-produced item that every active bridge has.

A monument is a larger stone with a title, the month and date of construction, the origin of the monument, and the people involved.

Therefore, this is considered a fake nomination, trying to get approval for something that can be found anywhere.

Also, there have been reports of abuse in the past in this area, especially in Tosa Town, so there may be a connection.
