Manhole : Osaka Prefecture


Osaka Prefecture

I thought this was another Higashi-Osaka Manhole but looking closely at the flag symbol at the middle, it shows that it is actually the Osaka Prefecture flag/symbol.

The hiragana “りゅういき” translate as river basin which runs all over Osaka Prefecture.

The design shows or depicts the Prefectures flower which is Plum Blossom and I think the leafy design is the Ginko Leaves which is the prefectures symbol for tree.
