There are many ways that artists can contribute to brightening up their home city, but what they have done here is unexpected and creative, decorating manhole covers.

It started in the 1980s when Japan underwent major changes to their infrastructure, including the sewage systems in the more rural areas. The changes were expensive, and met with resistance, until the solution was made to let locals decorate their manhole covers to display local pride. A peaceful, simple idea that has created these awesome pieces of art.
