One of the most beautiful manhole covers in Yaizu City I discovered near the City Hall!
I couldn’t determine if the fish are tuna or bonito as both are brought there in large numbers!
Yaizu City is one of the major fishing harbor cities in Japan with Numazu City and Shimoda City Tokyo couldn’t survive without. The other day I intensively research the city for manhole covers and I came with more than I bargained for as I included the whole technical range!
An older big manhole with tuna/bonito!
I couldn’t find it colored version!
This one is probably the most famous of all with Mount Fuji and tuna/bonito!
The same in different colors!
The same again without the colors!
An old-style sewer manhole cover!
The same but newer and different in minute details!
This manhole cover was truly enormous!
Another sewer type manhole cover!
A very large sewer-type manhole cover!
Note the central motif generally found in Yaizu City!
Practically the same but medium-sized!
A similar but older type and without the central motif!
Another celebrated manhole cover over a fire hydrant and celebrating the Yaizu Harbor Festival!
This type can be found in many cities but this is the first time I discovered one with “GAS” written in English!
Once again a common small sized one but with “valve pit” written in English and “GAS” in Japanese!
The same as above but “valve pit” both in English and Japanese!
The two of them side by side!
Take your pick!
A large one “blended” in its surroundings!
I will have to to find out what “C.C.B.” means!
Another modern but rectangular sewer manhole cover “blended” into its surroundings!
Similar as above but square!
Two different types together over heavy water machinery access!
I found many of this small and cute type in the city so I doubt that they are private!
An older and slightly smaller version than the above!
A newer type of a water valve pit cover with clear measure indications!
Another newer water valve pit cover,probably private!
A private water valve pit cover!
An old gas valve pit cover!
A tiny C.C.B valve pit cover with the Yaizu City motif!
An old medium-sized sewer manhole cover!
A medium-sized sewer manhole cover which can bear up to 400 kg!
A rare old type of valve pit cover!
This comparatively small-sized private rain water cover is written with “No cars allowed to run over”!
The same, but form another company!
This one is owned by Harmonate Company!
A smaller and different type from the same company!
I found this medium type rain water cover on the platform of Yaizu JR station platform which can bear up to 400 kg!
The same as above but without the central motif and the ability to bear up to 450 kg!
Blimey, 37 pictures in all!
