Japan’s Artistic Manhole Covers

Japaness Urban Art

When in Japan, there are a lot of unique and amazing street art, and this includes manhole covers. Every manhole has a unique design that either represents the area or Japan in general. I always tried to take photos of every manhole I saw on the streets.  It would be a good project to travel all over Japan just to take photos of manhole covers.


Can you guess the city where I took each manhole covers?

    It says Osui, but no idea where Osui is. Nara? (because of the deer…) 😀

      yes the one with a deer is Nara.I know “sui” means water… so I googled and “osui” actually means Sewage/filthy water. 🙂

        Ahh, I see. I wasn’t paying attention that each manhole represents one city. 😀 Thanks. Just a guess, the one in castle is Osaka? 🙂
