I do not know how to triangulate in google maps.

:(

Also, it's spelled Nakamurokoen.

Current challenge- viewtopic.php?f=14&t=56976&start=720#p2263683

Third edit: How come Japan gets seven-elevens, and Iowa doesn't?

Fourth Edit: There's like, three different circle K's in the area. Which one?

take a screen shot of the map :) use paint, draw approximate circles to time of walk for given minutes for radius, then look where they intersect, look for that spot in google maps the you have a smaller search.

triangulation is not required, it was my hint. you could have asked a Q21, and 22, and 23.... but you keep choosing not to... new post with another hint coming in...






Spoiler:
search the hotspot area from triangulation.
Use the ruler on the bottom left of picture the 200m side, and use as radius from center of triangulated hotspot. it is in that area...

or you can ask Q21

I agree, this was a killer pick, you get my HoF vote. That said, I am taking the next one and I think pheonix should be the only one to try so he can use his.

Just for the record, i spent HOURS looking for this place!!!!!!!!!! and at one point i even had the building, with the two cars and the laundry and the satellite dish and i was like YEAH! but then i realized the cars were red, and for the freaking life of me, I could not think why I thought that was the spot.

lol yeah, it was brutal. But i'm glad someone found it. I didn't have the time or energy to really push for trying to find it. I'm also really glad that it didn't technically go over 20 questions. You gave some hints, but those were mostly unsolicited. Well done Kromix, and shotgun @ the lazy attempt comment. :twisted:

HAHAHA, lost! If I ever found my self in that city I would quickly settle into the fact I was never leaving.

I think mine is just a little easier than Kromix'. I promise no triangulation to get it.

Here is mine, should be easy, LET PHOENIX DO IT!

I don't own couches, they attract couch bums. I have chairs that fold out into recliners. I only tell a person about the fold out part if I know they will never try and sleep over for more than one night.

Seriously, if you become a place that hosts couch bums, you can only get rid of them by calling an ex to your house while they are asleep and giving the ex 60 seconds alone with them asleep and a sharpie.
