Those Japanese are real quick at fixing things, aren't they? This sinkhole appeared a week ago in downtown  Fukuoka, near a busy subway.  It was busily repaired and has reopened within a week.  The mayor released a statement apologising for the "great trouble" the sinkhole had caused.  He expressed his gratitude to workers for their efforts completing the restoration work "promptly with safety first".  "From now on I will do my utmost to investigate the cause and compensate for the damage," the statement said.  The cause of the collapse in the city's Hakata district had been linked to ongoing subway construction nearby.

No, I just watched it on TV.
Hakata is a little far from here...

Fortunately, no drivers were there when the subsidence happened.
Only five minutes before, an engineer working for construction of the subway warned the accident and the city closed the road.
So nobody was affected by that.
I felt relieved to hear the news.
