Hi, Martin:

Thank you for your review and comments!

We cannot distinguish a path from a footway from Tondabayashi geospatial data itself, tag will be added with checking Bing/GSImaps/ort satellite images.

And such municipal road data does not contain highway=service or service=alley because municipal road data includes only public highway.

The propose follow the tagging plan of existing import cases of several Japanese cities like Urayasu and Sabae.
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JA:Sabae/bld_import http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue/Urayasu_bld_import)

Now we would like to add the tag "building:material=concrete" temporarily, if the new adequate tag is accepted on the tagging ML, we will change such inadequate tag to good one (searching by overpass turbo).
