A few of us did manhole rubbings outside a hot spring in Minakami, Gunma. It started raining though so this one didn't get much color on it.

This is the drawing that started the rubbings. There was a manhole outside my apartment in Igusa ,Ashikaga. This was just a test to see if the design would come through.After a few strokes I could tell that I would be able to do rubbings and the rest is history.
Megumi Kindergarten
