For example whereas they are simply patted on the stone or asphalt, cycling lanes signs are solid tilework!

Kyoto seems to be fond of bronze plaques giving bilingual directions to passers-by!

Pavement decorations can be tiny like these near the Kabuki Theater!

Or they can be immense inside malls!

That’s how far it goes!

But the Demachi Esplanade made up for them all!

Look at the pavement under the feet of the customers!
