In Japan, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) describes "児童館(children's centres)" on the following official website
As explained on the following official website
A children's home is one of the child welfare facilities provided for in Article 40 of the Child Welfare Law, and its purpose is to provide children with sound play in the community in order to promote their health and enrich their emotions.
According to one of the Japanese laws, these facilities exist for "all children (under 18 years old)".
A stone monument to the "Three Styles of Ancient and Modern Flowers".
I couldn't help laughing when I saw it.
This is a wooden sign, probably indicating the home and classroom of a flower arranger.
It just hangs on a gatepost.
but He says
"But it's made of stone and it's a historical monument!"
This is a footbridge.
イチョウと銀杏のマンホール/Ichou and Ginnan Manhole
This manhole is located on the roadway.
It is an ordinary mass-produced manhole, not unique.
Moreover, the position has been intentionally moved.
Do you remember my previous post about a fraudulent application for a vacant lot at a daycare center using a picture of the daycare center's playground equipment?
If the applicant is the same player, I think it is evidence that he is trying to create a spot in the same location illegally!
@NianticCasey-ING @NianticAaron How on earth are you allowing this kind of shaming in your forum? It’s a kid, it’s not relevant if he uploaded his image to the system, publishing his face (with a tiny line over his eyes) on your official forum in a ridiculing context and letting it stay here for over 6 six months is not expectable. And all the forum participates that are so concerned with the “rules” but don’t seem to care when this is posted here - shame on you.
The road behind the house.
An object placed on a fence in a private home.
In reality this user should have followed ToS & his parents should probably monitor him a little better. I agree that his face should not have been displayed but he also should not have taken this photo to begin with. If his account were labeled as a child’s account he would not have been able to submit to begin with. This is not Niantics problem at all
The following POI proposal may have been made by a third party pretending to be The parties concerned.
I was talking only about his face being publicly displayed here. His misbehavior does not give a permission to shame him in a public offical forum, he’s underage and it’s not relevant what TOS he breached. You’re confusing internal mobile game rules with 1. the law, and 2. basic morals.
Why did you mention that it's a footbridge? Some of us can't read Japanese so we are unsure if it says otherwise.
This is as you see it, but outside Japan
you may not see a compact "pedestrian bridge" like this one.
The title of the application says "青い橋(Blue Bridge)" in Japanese.
This bridge, which is used to cross the footpath and the opposite side of the road, up and down steps and over the carriageway,
It is a "footbridge".
See page 12 of the following PDF from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
It is not blue in colour, but it is of the same type.
This is one of the most obvious examples of a footbridge in Japan.
If you copy and paste the following Japanese words into a Google image search, for example, you will easily understand that the subject of this application is a "footbridge".
(*mean "Footbridge and cherry blossom")
(*mean Footbridge and snow day)
Are you interested in Japanese animation and subcultures?
I haven't seen yet, but one of the most famous Japanese animators, Makoto Shinkai, has a film called "Your name."(『君の名は。』).
There is also a famous scene about a pedestrian bridge in this film.
Official Trailer No.2
"Meets portal requirements" how though?
Assuming the artwork is there and the power box is on the public sidewalk, isn’t that a valid nomination?
It’s a temporary thing and also uses game specific terms. If someone spray painted a SoftBank Ultra Link or Harry Potter’s Wand on to it, the same would apply.
Temporary is the only thing that disqualifies this. Game specific references aren't allowed when it has nothing to do with the wayspot. If this is/was permanent, it should be eligible.
"a must see chimny"
A small shrine in a private house. Only the people of the house are allowed to visit.
It is only for the people of the house.
The title "Forest". But in reality it is a private residence.
Footbridges are acceptable POI so I am uncertain what the issue is here.
Umm, is anything happening here anymore?
It just feels like Niantic staff is just ignoring this now, considering the last wave of actions were done in May. To be frank, I'd start ignoring this too. So many eligible nominations are actually being posted here which are solely the opinion of the wayfinder reporting as such and I don't want to see honest attempts being penalised. Examples being are the footbridge, the beautiful artwork at the hospital and even coin-operated machines in front of shops (which, to an older AMA were deemed eligible).
It seems that way too much work is being reported here and people are not getting a reflection or notice that these are being actioned. It would take a long time to comb through all of these, and by expecting an outcome in a way you may inadvertently overload Niantic staff. Yeah, I have a TON of things to share. But it's probably best I just off hold now.
Looking at the "artwork", it's an obvious attempt to get a stop closer to their house. At best, it's temporary. I'd say the same if it was an Ingress reference in the artwork or a HPWU.
