In the museums, but also in places where you wouldn't expect it, for example, on the sidewalk. namely almost all municipalities in Japan have their own "manhole cover".
 
Sewer Manhole covers, beautiful piece by piece. Places even compete for the best drain cover. The design municipalities use are often a symbol of the city that features area.
