There are so many things to see and experience all over Japan, that it’s hard to know where to start. Japanese photographer S. Morita has decided to keep his eyes glued to the ground in search of the country’s awesomely decorative manhole covers. Japanese municipalities have been designing their own manhole covers since 1985 and Morita has been traveling around the country for years documenting these uniquely beautiful features of the urban landscape.

According to the Japan Society of Manhole Covers (yes, that’s a thing) today there are almost 6000 artistic manhole covers throughout Japan. And according to their latest findings, the largest single category are trees, followed by landscapes, floral designs and birds – all symbols that could, and surely did, boost local appeal.

With 6000 manhole covers out there, S. Morita has his work cut out for him if he intends to photograph them all. But he’s well on his way. Click here to view many, many more.

2010 Hewitson Baby Bush Mourvèdre
Old vines with a modern twist! Dark fruit and mulch on the nose. A lot of dark fruit on the attack. Finish is cut short with alcohol. Needs a bit more balance.

Waterway to Orbit
This is so neat. On February 8th 2010, STS-130—the 32nd shuttle mission to the ISS—launched off the planet, and photographer James Vernacotola captured it. The image has an exposure of 132 seconds so you can see the shuttle’s long, graceful arc towards the east and its mirror image in the water below. This was taken from the Intracoastal Waterway Bright in Florida, 115 miles north of the shuttle’s launch site at the Kennedy Space Center.
