Weird photo collections - manhole covers in Japan

Travelling around the islands of Honshu and Kyushu, Japan we were bowled over by these beautiful drain covers in city streets. These beautiful designs feature motifs or stories from each city. Photos from Kobe, Tokyo, Nagoya, Takayama, Kyoto, Okayama, Nagasaki and Kamakura. Trust the Japanese to put beauty into even sewerage covers.


  1. Oh my gosh, these are GORGEOUS! Thanks for sharing. When I go to Japan, I will keep a look out for such things!

    1. There's art everywhere, thanks for your feedback, Jeff. I'm sure we have only scratched the (manhole) surface in Japan.
