SN3O5096

Big manhole cover over a fire hydrant tank in Yui!
Note the cherry shrimp/sakura ebi design!

SN3O5083

The same design near Yui JR Station!

Yui, which was still a city of its own not so long ago before it was merged into Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, might be relatively small, but is fishing harbor town known all over Japan for its succulent cherry shrimps/sakura ebi and thus deserved some particular attention!
