Japan is a country full of amazing art. Some of it is housed within museums and galleries while others are right underneath our feet. I’m talking, of course, about Japan’s peculiar obsession with manhole covers. Just about anywhere in the country you can find stylized manhole covers, each more beautiful and intricate than the next. For the past several years photographer S. Morita (MRSY on Flickr) has traveled around Japan photographing artistic manhole covers. I selected my ten personal favorites. Have a look below. Enjoy and head over to S. Morita‘s Flickr if you want to see more magnificent manhole covers.
