Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 16: Izu Peninsula (Part 1)


A beautiful mint sewer manhole cover from Ohito Town which merged into the new city of Izu No Kuni City!

This time let’s have a look at Izu Peninsula!
It is pretty complicated as the whole map of Izu Peninsula was revolutionized with the mergers of many towns and villages into cities, some of them brand new!


The same without the colors!

Also in Ohito a sewer type seen in many places in the Prefecture with slight differences in their central motif!


Another type in Atami City I hadn’t discovered in the former article on Atami City!
Note the central motif!


Shimoda City at the southern tip of Peninsula City boasts a lot of manhole covers due to its place in history with the arrival of the Black Ship in the 19th Century!
The above mint does not have colors inside the sails!


The sails in this mint are colored!


Same mint as above but with a different background color!

The same as above but for sewers!


This one is not from Shimoda but doanted to Shimoda City by Funabashi Village as they share history with the Black Ship!


The above was also donated to Shimoda City by Naga City for the same reason!
