Japan loves cute, even with its manhole covers. This month Hokkaido announces seven new Pokemon manhole covers or Pokefuta, as they are known in Japan. They feature the fox-like fire Pokemon Vulpix and its ice-type Alolan form, representing Hokkaido's warm and cold seasons. (I'm not a follower of all things Pokemon, so I have no idea about these creatures.) The new covers an be found in Hakodate, Otaru, Nemuro, Nororibetsu, Honbetsu, Rikubetsu, Nakashibetsu, and Sapporo. You can find out more about them here.
