[Yokohama City] Welcome to Yokohama! The GO GB manhole covers are placed around the square in front of Kita-yamata Station

The pre-Games training camp of the British National Swimming Team for Tokyo 2020 Olympics is currently being held at Yokohama International Swimming Pool.
Eleven manhole covers specially designed with GO GB logos have been placed around the square in front of Kita-yamata station.

We are cheering on all of the British Swimming Team who are training hard for Tokyo 2020.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the British National Team cannot use public transport and so cannot see the actual manhole covers, but we are exhibiting a replica cover in the training area at Yokohama International Swimming Pool for the team to see.
