One of the local manhole covers near Inuyama Castle.
Not only is the castle depicted on the cover but also cormorant fishing.This traditional method of fishing uses nets attached to the birds and has a long history.
It is possible to see the cormorants and the fishermen in action on the Kiso River during the fishing season that runs from around May to October each year.
