Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 61: Old and New Covers in Shimada City!

There are quite a feew so-called manhole covers to be discovered in the City of Shimada, old or new!
The fact that is also the locale of one of the most unusual matsuri/festivals in Japan as well as a city replete with history as it lies by the very wide Rive Oi, which served no less as a customs house city in Edo Period

SN3O5125

The first black and white old version of the Obi Festival held every three years in the center of Shimada City!

The same in its colored mint version displayed at the Shimada Waterworks Office!

SN3O5127

The second black version of the Obi Festival! It apparently does not exist as a colored mint!

The new oolored version of the Shimada Festival laid in 2019!

It is a unique cover which can be found along the main street north of the station about 10 minutes walk!

SN3O5126

The first black version of a rich lady being man-ported across the River Oi in the Edo Period!

The same in its colored mint version displayed at the Shimada Waterworks Office!

SN3O5128

The second version of the rich lady being man ported across the River Oi! A colored mint version apparently does not exist!

But like the Obi Festival a new version was laid down in 2019!

it is also unique and can be found at the entrance of the Horai Bridge!

Another unique manhole cover exists in Shimada City!

Only the center has been remodeled on a common cover to represent roses! Now, why roses?

It lies in front of the ice cream and souvenirs shop on the left and across from the Shimada Rose Hill Park!

SN3O0321

This common fire hydrant cover with a fire truck is prettyy common all over the prefecture and nation!

SN3O0323

The difference lies in the Shikada sigil/mark!

There are also decorated waterworks plaque including the Shimada sigil/mark!
Above is type 1!

Type 2!

Type 3!

SN3O5170

There also more old types such as the above fire hydrant cover!

SN3O5171

Check the Shimada sigi/mark!

SN3O5172

A valve cover!

SN3O5173

An old sewer cover with the Shimada sigil/mark!
Still looking around!

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 60: Visit of Shizuoka City Waterworks!

The relatively new Shizuoka City Waterworks Office is a place to visit for all true manhole covers fans!
It does have quite a few surprises for you you must not miss!
It is located about 15~20 minutes form Shozuoka JR Station. Walk straight up Gofukucho Street then turn right onto Shichikencho Street. The Office is located on your right side beyond the crossroads between Shichikencho and Showa Streets.

But before entering the building carefully check its surrounding pavements!

You will discover three unique manhole covers labelled “Shizuoka City waterworks” all installed in a single row! First one!

Second one!

Third one!

You will also find just next to them the cover commemorating the 400th Anniversary of the death of Lord Tokugawa Ieyasu in Sumpu City/now Shizuoka City (2nd version with a falcon and egg plants added)!

On the pavements and street nearby you will also find valve covers of two different sizes with Sumpu Castle on them!

And another utility cover!

Once past the entrance you will be welcomed by this sign!

Take the elevator! But get out at he third floor first!

Inside the elevator a sign will inform you that the Manhole cover card depicting Manga character Chibi Maruko is not available there but at the tourism Office located on the north side of Shimizu Station!

On the third floor proceed to your left!

Follow the arrows directing you to the desk where you can pick up a Shizuoka City manhole cover card!

It represents one (there are many types!) of the covers decorated with the City flower, the holluyhock/”Tachi Aoi/たち葵 in Japanese)!

With detailed information on the back!

Go back to the elevator and get out on the 6th floor!

You can’t miss the Shizuoka City Waterworks Display Room just in front of you!

Past the entrance!

You will find all kinds of artifacts displayed! take your time!

On that particular day they held an exhibition of drawings by local elementary pupils depicting themes based on water!

Bear in mind this is only a partial but very interesting display!

An ancient dragon waterspout!

The cover commemorating the 400th Anniversary of the death of Lord Tokugawa Ieyasu in Sumpu City/now Shizuoka City (2nd version with a falcon and egg plants added)!

A cover (there three versions) with a “Matoi/纏”, firemen Festival flag pole and swallows/ one of the emblem birds of Shizuoka City!

The cover depicting the 400th Anniversary of the coming of Lord Tokugawa Ieyasu to Fuchu City before he changed its name to Sumpu City (now Shizuoka City)!

An ancient sewer pipe!

Now, you will not find this cover anywhere as it was never installed as it was discovered that the design made it slippery in case of rain! It has been replaced since then with a cover depicting three kingfisher fire rescue members!

the very recent covers depicting Chobi Maruko, the famous character of the manga of the same name created by an artist living in Shimiau Ku, Shizuoka City!

This unique cover can be found behind Cenova Department Store in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!

This unique one can be found on the pavement by the north exit of Shimizu Station!

Have a nice day!

Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 59: Kakegawa City!

Looking for manhole covers is comparatively an easy search as all types an be found in the vicinity of the JR Station near the south and north exits!

The Kakegawa City Castle (replica) colored cover can be found just outside on the right (coming out) of the North Exit!

The uncolored version comes in three sizes: large,…

medium,…

and small!

The small one compared to a valve cover!

small valve cover!

Water cistern cover!

Sewer cover. Note the central Kakegawa City sigil!

Another sewer cover!

Former rectangular fire hydrant cover type 1,…

type 2,…

type 3!

Bear in mind that these are the types for Kakegawa City/central kakegawa City as the city has grown very large indeed at the turn of the millennium when many villages such as Nissaka, Daito and others were merged in!
Expect more, then!

Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 58: Nissaka, the Station along the Tokaido Trail in Kakegawa City!

Nissaka/日坂 was the 26th Station along the Tokaido as depicted in the 53 Stations of the tokaido as depicted in the World famous Utagawa Hiroshige’s woodblock prints/Ukiyoe. Actually you v\can find them all at Th the Hiroshige Museum in Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
For more information on that particular Ukiyoe/Woodblock Print check HERE!

Reaching the place is both complicated and easy.
Complicated when it comes to a tight schedule, but easy in concept!
Get off at Kakegawa Station (tokaido Line or Shinkansen Line), go out at South Exit and walk to the Bus Line Stop No 7 and borad a bus of the Higashiyaa Line/東山線. Keep inmind there are only less than a dozen buses a day which is why it is complicated. It costs only 300 yen as it is a community line. I advise you to get off at Nissaka/日坂!

The manhole covers are everywhere not to be missed!

The colored version!

The plain version!

Taking pictures of those manhole covers will take only a few minutes.
But remember that this was one important station of yore along the Tokaido Line that travelers used to walk around until the last years of Edo Period!

take the time to look at the old houses/inns of old and their names on wooden signs!

many of them are to the public to visit them at ease!

Some great pictures to take there as very few foreign tourists or residents have heard about the place nonetheless full of interest. Actually most Japanese tourists alight a couple of stops before to visit the celebrated local Shinto shrine!

i will definitely come again, not for the covers, beautiful as they might be, but to thoroughly explore the local culture and history!

Since I had about 40 minutes until the bus came back (bear in mind that the next one might have you wait two hours!) I took the opportunity to visit the only liquor shop in the village and sip a beer (directly from the can!) there while enjoying a great talk with the owner! Socialize with the locals and they will be only too happy to tell you more than expected!

No need to walk back to the Nissaka/日坂 bus as the next one, Shimomachi/下町 is right in front of the liquor shop!

Looking forward to the next visit!

Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 57: Old and New Toro Ruins Cover in Shizuoka City!

When sometime this year Shizuoka City decided to adorn the Suruga Office of the Shizuoka City Hall with an original colored sewer manhole cover, very few among the local media and even less among civil servants realized that the Toro Ruins (located in Suruga Ku, Shizuoka City) were already featured on a rectangular manhole cover which can be seen here and there in the northern half of Shizuoka City and even near Shizuoka Railway Station!

Apart of the Toro Ruins it featured Mount Fuji, the Abe River and green tea fields!
Check HERE for more information on the Toro Ruins!

The new cover was first exhibited inside the Suruga Office of the Shizuoka City Hall!

Many visitors commented that it was one of the cutest in Japan!

The City came up with the nickname of “Torobe” for the “Toro Ruins Character”!

Shizuka City is famous for its strawberry fields located by the sea south of the Toro Ruins!

And Mount Fuji of course!

As it is on the pavement in front of the Suruga Office of Shozuoka City Hall!
Note it is the unique sole location!

Shame.. Some people will have to take responsibility…
End of horror!
90+4′ Almost a ninth goal again but fans still encouraging!
90 + 3′ Almost a ninth goal!
Still the best fans in the world encouraging S-Pulse!
5 minutes of hell added! Corner kick for Consadole. Almost a ninth goal!

89′ GOAL! Eigth one given on a plate!
89′ Corner kick for Consadole.
88′ Almost the 8th goal!
83’Terrible display by umpire who first books Consadole’s forward for diving then changes the decision to give a free kick! GOAL! Thank you umpire!
78′ GOAL conceded after Umpire refused to give peanlty kick again!
S-Pulse never gave up but they made the work too easy for their opponents!
Back to the worst defense in Japan…
75′ GOAL! Another counter and easy goal!
73′ Another penalty kick refused!
72′ Consadole misses a fifth goal!
Taki in for Takeuchi.
70′ The luck is not with S-Pulse as a great heading hits the post!

Iida in to end Tatsuta’s torture!

S-Pulse was not dominated but they gave away two soft goals and made too many mistakes especially kaneko and Tasuta on the right side. We seem to be back to the old S-Pulse after some good results. The bench will have to contribute quickly or this will be hopeless especially with an umpire who does not protect players and forgets to use his eyes!
The first half finishes with another chance wasted as heading flies over the bar!
1 minute extra time. Game is becoming boring.
39′ Douglas misses an easy goal!
30′ GOAL! Another blunder leaves the goal open! Jay, the scorer who got booked for a brutality makes a gesture to the crowd but escapes booking!
18′ Corner kick for S-Pulse. Great combination but ball flies above bar!
