On the Way to Ishite-ji

It was a long, hot walk from the streetcar stop to the temple. I stopped a lady on the street to insure I was going the right way. She indicated I was. This manhole cover presented itself along the route.

Very creative cover for a manhole --- great presentation, Steve. I find it a very good idea instead of these dull black ones ........
