A number of fascinating pictures capturing the wonderful world of underground drainage systems in Japan were uploaded to a Russian LiveJournal blog. The pictures hold an artistic quality that replaces the ‘dirty’ image of sewers with that of an eerily enchanting sci-fi world.

One picture shows a wall painted with graffiti, though the only legible word is ‘Aobadai,’ referring to the place in the a district of Meguro, Tokyo where sewers run under. The author also found several old, broken cell phones, as well as a purse largely empty of its contents.

Perhaps a strange world of wonder and sewage lie hidden beneath your feet as well.
