One of the best things about technology (in my opinion) is having the ability to travel around the world by just a click of the mouse (or a press of your finger, if you’re using a mobile device). When we find weird buildings or even things that cannot be explained, it is even better. I have spent countless hours on Google Earth visiting places I have never been, and there are people who have found unusual cars, buildings and sculptures that have appeared on Google’s map feature throughout the years. Even though a lot of these things can easily be explained (no, I don’t believe in Santa Claus), it is fun imagining what they could be.
Underneath the subtitles you will find the coordinates for each location, and as of November 2015, they are still visible through Google Earth or Google Maps. When you first see an object, it may not look that large, but keep in mind that these are images that are captured from a satellite in space and (similar to the rear-view mirror in your car) are much bigger than they appear.

1 Batman’s Helipad
Coordinates (Latitude, Longitude): 26.357896, 127.783809
Location: Okinawa, Japan
That’s it, the mystery is solved. We all know where Batman lives now; Google Earth has identified his Helipad in Okinawa, Japan. I was so sure that he lived in New York, but that was just too obvious. He had to find somewhere in which he thought nobody would discover him. Perhaps if he didn’t paint his logo on the roof, his secret would still be safe.
Actually, this building is the Federal Credit Union for the United States Navy in Japan, so my assumptions weren’t too far off on this one. There is no mention of the comic book hero’s insignia on the bank’s website, but it is clearly seen from space. This is probably to keep The Joker away from all of that money.
