When you come to Japan there are many things to see not only on the same level with your eyes, on the street: manhole, a round-shaped art on the street.
In Japan, each city or area has unique designed manholes. It shows the city's or area's symbols, famous things or what they are proud of.
I love to looking for such unique manholes. Here are some of my photo collections.
1.Rugby World Cup
Tokyo was the host city of Rugby World Cup 2019. This manhole has the emblem of RWC2019. Many people came to Japan to see the RWC. It was very excited competition!
This manhole is located near one of the stadiums in Tokyo.
2.The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games
Olympic and Paralympic Games was going to held this summer in Japan. But due to coronavirus, it postponed until 2021. Tokyo was going to be the host city, so these manholes has Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games' emblem.
We can know the city's history, when and what kind of competition was held, form manhole.
I'll be happy if you get interested in Japanese manholes! And I hope I can take you around to see them after the COVID-19 pandemic!
