Walking around Nishinomiya, the other day, I could not help but look down to see what manhole covers they have. (I need to find a new hobby, it seems.) Here is what I found so far.
This manhole cover seems to be the more ubiquitous in Nishinomiya, featuring Koshien Stadium, home of the Hanshin Tigers, the sake breweries of Nada and sakura (cherry blossoms).
This cute design features a frog and sakura.
Nothing really special about these, but it was interesting to see the Star of David with the character for west (西, nishi from Nishinomiya) in the middle.
The hunt for more manhole covers continues.
