Saitama City manhole covers

The Urawa Reds are a J-League soccer team in Saitama City.  Why is that relevant? Take a look at Saitama City’s manhole covers!

They come in more than one colour.

This was the first time I’d seen sports themed manhole covers.  Usually, they feature the city’s flower or tree.

  1. Yay! Manholes! 🙂

    Omiya in Saitama also boasts manhole covers with the mascot of the soccer team Omiya Ardija on them. It’s a rather cute squirrel/chipmunk critter.

    If only in London, people would be creative and do this kind of thing. This is what I like about Japan. It would make Central London more interesting.
