Taken in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, the home of Shimizu S Pulse pro Soccer Team!
I already know of many blogging friends in Japan taking pictures of manhole covers all over this country.
The reason is simple enough: as there is little chance of them being stolen (I can’t say the same thing back in our countries!) the local/municipal government often use them as touristic advertisements !
I continued looking around Aoi Ku and Shimizu Ku in Shizuoka City and in other cities.
As I’m sure there are quite a few around there should quite a few more articles about the subject in the offing!
I might even close this series with another “Ten Best”!
I found this one in Numazu City representing its harbor and Mount Fuji!
I found this manhole cover in Kikugawa City over a pressured air duct!
I found this one In Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City over a water hydrant reserved to local firemen!
This design exists in different colors in Aoi Ku, Shziuoka City!
The same as above, but without the enameled colors!
This one in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, both exists with and without colors!
