Japanese manhole covers

Japanese manhole covers, which can be seen in a variety of designs depending on locality, utility type and the manufacturer of the particular manhole cover, have caught the imagination of a growing number of "drainspotters" from around the world.

A quick search on Google reveals the increasing number of tribute sites and the popularity of the cult of the manhole.

Japan's manhole covers often include a symbol specific to an area or town as part of the overall design. In Kyoto, a turtle (a symbol of wisdom and longevity) is the main motif, in addition local landmarks, festivals or flora and fauna can all be incorporated into these works of art under our feet.
