What's a police box?
A mini police station where you can go for all kinds of assistance (directions, lost & found, reporting suspicious stuff etc).
The TARDIS is a police box if you need a point of reference.
こうばん tend to be larger than British police boxes, however. They are usually small buildings containing a single office.
Thanks for asking, I did not want to sound like I did not know anything......jk
I get "Michi no tsuno" instead of "Michi no kado". Which is the right reading ?
Here "kado" is correct. "tsuno" means animal horns, or antlers, which share the same kanji with the word for "corner".
On the corner sounds more natural than at the corner.
Opposite to me and I got the "on" version in my question
Hello I'm the Doctor

'there is a police box on the corner' marked wrong - what other kind of corner could it refer to besides a street corner??
It does refer to the, and i quote, "street corner" which sounds very unnatural to me
