Beautiful Manhole Cover

These manhole covers are so beautiful!!

Artist Remo Camerota who born in England, moved to Japan in pursuit of "anything Japanese that has not been spotted in the west." According to Camerota, who documented the manhole art movement in a new book entitled "Drainspotting," 95 percent of the 1,780 municipalities in the country have created original manhole covers to portray their individualized cultures or trades.
