Sometimes, you have to look down at your feet to discover small treasures hidden in plain sight. These are some of the beautiful Japanese manhole covers with amazing designs and colors.

I found and photographed them during my last road trip throughout Japan. Every cities and prefectures in Japan have their own designs, from Tokyo to Hiroshima through Kawagoe, Nagoya, Gero Onsen, Osaka or Kawaguchiko. Open your eyes and enjoy!
