If you’ve ever been interested in the variety of artful manhole covers in Japan, we’ve got some good news! Apparently they will be launching a set of collectable cards at the “manhole” summit in Tokyo.
The covers attract a special kind of tourist – “drainspotters” – who visit from around the world to see their distinctive designs. The covers often feature a symbol specific to an area or town, or a local mascot – BBC
Hmm I wonder how I can convince my wife to attend…Look honey there’s a major manhole summit happening in Tokyo…Wait! They’re going to be giving cards away for free if you visit their sewage plant!…(walks away)
