Plans are afoot to build an 800x12m swimming pool in the Dotonbori Canal in Osaka, Japan, according to a report in the Japan Times on Wednesday.

The scheme is reminiscent of YN Studio’s plan to introduce a commuter swimming lane, dubbed the LidoLine, into London’s Regent’s Canal. The idea is to drop a 12 m (40 ft) wide tank into the canal, and fill it with treated water from the city’s water systems rather than using filtered water from the canal.
