Remo Camerota’s blog of Japanese manholes is now availiable in coffee table print form for everyone to see the bizarre imagery unpluged. Camerota has collected images of the striking manhole covers from all over Japan that were created as part of Japan’s 20 year beautification program that included multiple foundries and pitted once city against another to stand out the most with their covers.

From happy crabs, dinosaurs, cherry blossoms, skyscrapers & little red ridding hood there is little that has not been depicted on these covers.

Paper Castle on the Ocean, by Tokyo-based art student Wataru Itou.  It’s not fireworks, but it makes me go ‘ohhhhhhhhh! and it’s all pretty and glowy and shit. Happy 4th!
