Big manhole cover over a fire hydrant tank in Yui!
Note the cherry shrimp/sakura ebi design!
The same design near Yui JR Station!
Yui, which was still a city of its own not so long ago before it was merged into Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, might be relatively small, but is fishing harbor town known all over Japan for its succulent cherry shrimps/sakura ebi and thus deserved some particular attention!
One can find both the large version and small version together along the road starting left of Yui Station!
The smaller blue version!
A large orange fire hydrant commonly found throughout the prefecture but with one detail separating it for the rest!
This particular emblem can be found only in Yui!
Note that the color orange often denotes fire station property!
A large and beautiful bronze color manhole cover!
Manufactured by the Chubu Foundry!
They are to be found in one single spot across from a bank!
Unusually blue for that type but with the Yui emblem!
I’m sure that the color blue has a meaning!
A common valve pit manhole cover but with a different detail!
The Yui emblem!
A private manhole cover which can bear up to 500 kg. The notice says to secure it safely and tightly!
Another private manhole cover capable of bearing up to 500 kg!
Still another private manhole cover produced by Nikko Company (founded in 1908)!
This private manhole cover produced by BK Company can only bear up to 450 kg!
But this other one by the same compny can bear up to 500 kg! LOL
