Pokémon on Tomakomai City manhole cover
A “Poké Lid” manhole cover design based on the popular game “Pocket Monsters” has appeared near the fountain plaza in Tomakomai City’s Idemitsu Culture Park.
Nationwide Poké Lids are donations for regional development given by The Pokémon Company (Tokyo) to city governments all over Japan. Each city has a different manhole cover design. Other Hokkaido cities to receive a manhole cover are Mikasa City, Kamifurano Town, and Kembuchi Town, making Tomakomai City the fourth recipient. The Tomakomai manhole cover features the foxlike characters Vulpix and Ninetales (known in Japan as Rokon and Kyukon), and has the city name “Tomakomai” written on it in Japanese.
