Japanese Manhole Covers IV

マンホールの蓋

Enjoy these manhole covers from Shimane and Hiroshima Prefecture. Japanese manhole covers often present the main attractions and characteristics of their localities. Thus the Miyajima manhole in Hiroshima portrays the maple leaf the picturesque island is famous for. Masuda is on the Japan Sea coast and is known for its fish and fishing port.

Japanese manhole covers are a unique form of street design and definitely worth keeping your eyes to the ground for.
