The very first Higashi Osaka Manhole was posted in my last year entry and another one.
Let’s put them all together in one post.
Higashiōsaka (東大阪市 Higashiōsaka-shi?, literally “East Osaka”) is a city located in Osaka Prefecture, Japan. The city is known as one of the industrial cities of Japan and “the rugby football town”.
As of August 1, 2011, the city has an estimated population of 509,230 and a population density of 8,200 persons per km². The total area is 61.81 km
The design is based on the City’s Flower Symbol: Ume (Plum) and the City’s Flag.
This one indicates that it is known also as the “Ruby Town” of Osaka Prefecture.
Another one that says “Rugby Town” of Osaka.
And the latest one I found early this year during one my walk around Higashi Osaka
A very detailed depiction of men playing Rugby.
