Manhole Cover – Chiba

If you pay attention when you are out and about in Japan you will notice that the Japanese make some everyday things into works of art. Manhole covers are one of those things.

The cover to the left is from Chiba Prefecture is quite beautiful considering what it covers. People look at you a little bit funny when you are photographing manhole covers but such is the life of a blogger.

The bird is a tern (koajisashi), the trees are Japanese zelkova (keyaki) and the flower is an Oga Lotus (oga hasu).

So don’t forget to look down as you wander around in Japan – you might miss something!
