Wait, yes it actually is funny.
The Japanese internet has been provided with so much needed humor by Apple's latest iOS update. I've taken some of the better images from here. If I had an iOS device, I'd probably waste the better part of the weekend looking for stuff like this. It's really horrible. Cleaning up this database is going to be a lot of work. It's not just the lack of detail, but mistakes in labeling.
I am reminded of how the Japanese internet fell all over itself when Apple named its voice assistant in a way that sounds like butt in Japanese.
Similar to when Fox news created the infamous "Shibuya Eggman" nuclear reactor, we now have McDonald's Station. Some chicken nuggets with that? The map is so bad that is impossible to even tell where this is.
Here's a railway station that has been named after a pachinko parlor "Gundam".
Continuing with the railway stations, here is where someone did a search from Keikyu Kamata Station. Lot of results. Not a single one is actually in the right place.
Next we have a station that is apparently not attached to a railway line.
Looking for Osaka Station? Well, it's apparently not in the database. That'll piss off Hashimoto!
How about the world's busiest train station, Shinjuku, with more lines that I can count on my fingers? At least it has a marker.
This place is a grocery store called LAMU（ラ•ムー）but everything after the dot as been truncated. Seriously, cleaning up this database is going to be hard work!
Here's one with place names written in Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. Apparently there is a lot of Korean written on the maps.
Maybe airports are better? Nope. Haneda Airport is mislabeled as a paper factory. The best part? They're not even located near the airport.
Narita? not in the database. At least they have the area.
