Sometimes we need to look down to see some beautiful art. How many of you have noticed the manhole cover in your area?

These are the different manholes with design I found within Osaka City and Daito City. I am sure there are more with interesting design in different area.  If you ever visit parts of Japan, try to check interesting manhole cover designs 🙂

    The Daito City one is really quite beautiful! I did find a stunning one in Yamaga (Kyushu) the other day that depicts their lantern festival. I always try to remember to look down now whenever I am in a new city in Japan!

      yes , the one in Daito was the very first one that I took. It’s one of the few colored one around Daito.

Any thoughts?
