Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 47: Shuzenji in Izu City

Shuzenji used to be a town of its own before a lot of towns and cities were merged at the end of the last Century and at the beginning f the present one.
It makes things confusing in some places and Shuzenji is a case in point. It is now part of the new City called Izu (not to be confused with Izu no Kuni City!)!
Accordingly two types of logos on manhole covers will be found in the streets and pavements, taht of Shuzenji and that of Izu City!

The above plaque has the logo of Shuzenji!

This small water valve cover also bears the Shuzenji logo!

Now, this is the large modern manhole covers with the new logo of Izu City and irises found all over the new City regardless of its ancient history!

This water valve bears the new Izu City logo!

On the other hand this older valve is a hot spring natural hot water access valve!

Good hunting!
