Each city or town in Japan has its own distinctive man-
hole covers.The covers reflect the local area and are often decorated with flowers and other things that symbolise that place.

This particular example comes from Tajimi in Gifu Prefecture and includes items of pottery which is Tajimi's and the neighbouring areas main industry and employer.
