decorated with anime characters that glow in the dark, to the delight of locals and city officials.

More like the delight of whoever got paid for this total waste of tax payer money and some kidults.

Awesome! I'd pay a fortune for one if it came on the market. This is the type of niche "cool Japan" tech that Japan should eye exporting worldwide.

What an utter waste of taxpayer money.

Sometimes you can be so funny. What on earth would you do with an illuminated Gundam manhole cover?

I visit Japan often. My last trip I stayed at Kino Saki Onsen. What a wonderful place. I left my heart there when I left. All around the town there are hundreds of artful Man-Hole Covers.

I think I have photo's of every one of them.

Thank you Japan.

This is pretty cute and unique. If I were in Japan right now I would certainly take a pic of something this cool. In my country for a time there was an urban decorating project called 'City Year' where college students would do decorating work like this, festooning streets with the 'City Year' logo. This just makes city street walking a bit more interesting and adds to urban pride.
