Another smaller erasure of Taki’s legacy was noticed by Twitter user Step_Jerk on Wednesday. Taki was one of two individuals painted onto a custom manhole cover on the street outside the south exit of the Fujieda railway station in Fujieda, Shizuoka. According to Step_Jerk’s post, the cover was there that morning but was gone by 6 p.m. that day.

The manhole cover was made to promoteShizuoka Asahi TV‘sPierre Taki no Shonnai TV variety show, one of the programs recently cancelled. It was put in place in September 2017. Taki is himself a Shizuoka native.
