This manhole cover can be seen in Assabu town, one-hour-and-half drive distance from Hakodate. The character comes from potatoes whose brand name is Mayqueen. Mayqueen potatoes are major product in Assabu.
Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
