There are quite a feew so-called manhole covers to be discovered in the City of Shimada, old or new!
The fact that is also the locale of one of the most unusual matsuri/festivals in Japan as well as a city replete with history as it lies by the very wide Rive Oi, which served no less as a customs house city in Edo Period


The first black and white old version of the Obi Festival held every three years in the center of Shimada City!

The same in its colored mint version displayed at the Shimada Waterworks Office!


The second black version of the Obi Festival! It apparently does not exist as a colored mint!

The new oolored version of the Shimada Festival laid in 2019!

It is a unique cover which can be found along the main street north of the station about 10 minutes walk!


The first black version of a rich lady being man-ported across the River Oi in the Edo Period!

The same in its colored mint version displayed at the Shimada Waterworks Office!


The second version of the rich lady being man ported across the River Oi! A colored mint version apparently does not exist!

But like the Obi Festival a new version was laid down in 2019!

it is also unique and can be found at the entrance of the Horai Bridge!

Another unique manhole cover exists in Shimada City!

Only the center has been remodeled on a common cover to represent roses! Now, why roses?

It lies in front of the ice cream and souvenirs shop on the left and across from the Shimada Rose Hill Park!


This common fire hydrant cover with a fire truck is prettyy common all over the prefecture and nation!


The difference lies in the Shikada sigil/mark!

There are also decorated waterworks plaque including the Shimada sigil/mark!
Above is type 1!

Type 2!

Type 3!


There also more old types such as the above fire hydrant cover!
