Path of Otsu-e (Artistic Manholes)

Otsu-e ("Otsu pictures") are folk paintings that were painted and sold in the Omi (Shiga) regions of Otani and Oiwake, and that are said to originate in the Edo period (1603 - 1868). You will find many of them lining this special path, allowing you to enjoy some of their representative works while taking a stroll. You can also search for the Otsu-e manhole cover that can only be found here!
