Kanagawa Prefecture Manhole Covers

マンホールの蓋

Enjoy these manhole covers from Kanagawa Prefecture kindly sent to us by Gene Melson. Japanese manhole covers often present the main attractions and characteristics of their localities. Thus the ports of Yokohama and Yokosuka have suitably nautical themes and an image of the American navy commander Commodore Perry, who landed in Yokosuka in 1853.

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