From coast to coast in Japan, tourists and locals alike now have a reason to walk with their heads down. At any moment, one of the country’s 12,000 painted manhole covers might pass by under your feet. So far, 1,700 towns and cities have taken part in the program. The designs vary from place to place. Covers in one ancient town show an old castle, while one port city has paintings of a bay bridge. On the streets of Tama, people are treated to a picture of Hello Kitty holding an umbrella.

從日本東岸至西岸,遊客和當地人現在都有理由當「低頭族」了。因為你可能隨時會走過這個國家一萬兩千個著色的人孔蓋之一。到目前為止,已有一千七百座城鎮參與了這項計畫。其設計因地而異。人孔蓋在一座古老的城鎮中描繪的是一座古堡,而一個港口城市的則繪有港灣大橋。在多摩市的街道上,人們可以在上面看到一幅凱蒂貓撐傘的圖象(編按:因為三麗鷗彩虹樂園位於該市)。
