Add to favorites

The manhole cover reproduced on this pin is located in the city of Fujiyoshida 富士吉田市 (Yamanashi pref.), 100 km west of Tokyo. It is a cute little country town of 50,500 inhabitants built on lowlands on Mount Fuji's ancient lava flows, it is twinned with Colorado Springs (US) and Chamonix (FR).
On the manhole cover we can see the natural heritage of the city: birches, cherry blossoms, woodpeckers, and of course the view of Mt. Fuji.
