Artistic manhole covers are the new craze in Japan

Japan has found an artistic way of covering up manholes by elaborately designed and colorful manhole covers with 12,000 local varieties nationwide - including, of course, a Hello Kitty design.

The colorful and hand painted manhole covers adorn the streets of 1,700 towns, cities and villages across Japan and have spawned a collection craze among so-called "manholers".

The designs represent the culture of the place and act as an instant guide: a castle design for an ancient town, a bay bridge for a port and Mt Fuji for a city at the foot of Japan's iconic mountain.
