A splendid fire hydrant manhole cover with the symbol of Kanazawa City, the stone lantern in Kanazawa castle park!
I’ve just come back for a 2-night, 3-day trip to Kanazawa City in Ishikawa Prefecture, so you can expect quite a few reports in the days to come!
I start with what I could see ta my feet, namely manhole covers!
A brand new style of sewer manhole cover!
A large water access manhole cover with central motif “金” for “金沢/Kanazawa City”!
A large, probably private manhole cover although there were quite a few around!
A large rectangular manhole cover seen here and there.
The same as the brand new above but obviously a lot older and used above a fire hydrant!
The same a s above. Fire hydrant are immediately recognizable as they are painted in yellow or the pavement around them also painted in yellow!
A beautiful double manhole cover in the middle of the street!
A fairly old big manhole cover!
Interesting police manhole cover over access to traffic lights control machinery produced by Fukunishi Foundry!
A manhole cover with the city emblem motif blending into its pavement environment!
An old type of manhole cover over access to electricity machinery produced by Ohtake Foundry!
Gas valve pit manhole cover. Green seems to be the universal indicator for gas!
A medium-sized valve pit manhole cover!
A newly made intricate manhole cover!
Beautiful sewer cover (not manhole) found along the Higashi Chaya Resort Street!
Another round manhole cover with a different central indication!
Another manhole cover blending into is surrounding pavement along the street to the Ishikawa Prefecture Museum!
This type of fire hydrant manhole cover is found all over the country but each city, as shown here again, has a distinctive symbol!
