A manhole (alternatively utility hole, cable chamber, maintenance hole, inspection chamber, access chamber, sewer hole, or confined space) is the top opening to an underground utility vault used to house an access point for making connections, inspection, valve adjustments or performing maintenance on underground and buried public utility and other services including water, sewers, telephone, electricity, storm drains, district heating and gas.

Manhole is everywhere all over the world, but Japanese Manholes are sometimes so uniquely designed.
Some of them reflect the famous place or well-known product of its city.
