Decorated manhole covers all seem to be those of fire hydrants in Kanaya Cho in Shimada City, although there is a big oddity!
Big red fire truck. This design can be found in many cites in side and outside Shizuoka Prefecture although the “city crest” will be different!
This must a fairly recent cover as the crest is that of Shimada City to which Kanaya was recently merged!
Same with a slight difference!
Space was cut to accommodate measurement information!
Interestingly enough this one was donated by the City of Ise in Mie Prefecture!
A specail pattern found in other cities, although rare. With a local central motif, althogh apparently not of Kanaya nor of Shimada City!
A common fire hydrant type with the Kanaya Crest!
A more ancient variety with a single “handle”!
Another ancient type found elsewhere but with the Kanaya Crest!
The same, double, but with “water” mark!
A very old one, unspecified but very probably a fir hydrant, with “Kanaya Vilage” inscribed long before the merging with Shimada City!
Water valve pit with the Kanaya Crest!
