Japanese Manhole Art

Goddammit the Japanese are cool. I reckon the world would have approximately 64% less awesome stuff if Japan never existed, including their manhole art. Yep. Littered around Japan are manhole covers emblazoned with unique Japanese styled designs, often in some way related to the town it belongs to. For example, in Hokaido, squid is considered a delicacy, so the government decided they should whack some crazy little squids on their manholes in honour of their love of the tasty little cephalapods. It's even gotten to a point where the awesomeness has become a competition between municipalities.
