This week’s Friday post is a bit of a cheat post for me. There won’t be a lot of information as I will post mostly photos. It is a little change as I wanted to little treat for Lina at Urutora no Hi. She enjoys manhole covers in Japan so when I went on my Setouchi Triennale, I took snaps of a few manhole covers and I hope she likes it. Manhole covers in Japan are pretty famous. You can even find books detailing them and where they come from. Manhole covers are pretty expensive and Japan has the best ones.
The first one is from Takamatsu. It’s of an archer pointing his arrow to the sky.
The one is from Naoshima. This cover has the symbol/flower of Naoshima.
I didn’t see many manholes in the Setouchi area, so this one is from Okayama. It is of Momotaro.
Kurashiki, in Okayama, has this cute cover for fire hydrants. In Japan, they put fire hydrants underground.
