Kyoto Pavement Art


Like in every city in Japan yu should have a god look at the pavements of Kyoto City, although they are remakably from this of other cities!

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!

Another example!

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

Or they can be immense inside malls!

On the other hand Kyoto have very few kinds of decorated manhole covers, a somewhat disappointing discovery!

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!

I took them all, so let’s see if you can rcognize all the seafood depicted on them!
They are all different, but they don’t need any explanations!
Here we go, 30 of them!

Good-bye Demachi Esplanade!
