Will Miss #315 - Japanese manhole covers

A manhole cover at Mt. Takao.

Many areas in Japan have unique manhole covers. You can find pictures of them on Japan blogs all over the web, and there is even a book devoted to them. Some of them are colorful or intricate and others are cute. Most of them are culturally relevant to the regions they are in.

I'll miss chancing across these interesting and often artistic drain covers.
