street art

Street art has been becoming much more main stream thanks to artists like Banksy and the movie Exit through the Gift Shop. But street art in Japan has been everywhere for years in the form of beautifully decorated manhole covers. Just about every town in Japan has its own design for manhole covers, sometimes they’re even painted. I’ve tried to find each city’s version in my travels and these are just the beginning.
