Fukuoka City Gets Cute Manholes

Fukuoka City Waterworks Bureau is working to raise awareness of its sewerage system by introducing designed manhole covers with a cute design. The most recent design includes a tiny heart symbol on the round lid which is 60 cm in diameter. The city is preparing 51 lids with the special design, a few of which have already been installed on the streets in front of JR Hakata Station and the Hakata Sennen-no-mon Gate.
