Dezomeshiki Firefighters Expo

January 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Every year at the end of the New Year holidays, a fun event showcasing the skill of our local firefighters is on display for everyone to enjoy.

The event in Japanese is called dezome-shiki [消防出初式] and includes a parade, demonstration of Edo-era ladder acrobatics (hashigo-nori), fire fighting and helicopter rescue demonstrations, and an impressive grand finale.

Great fun for families with kids, but anyone is welcome to join – there are no admission charges.

Note:

This event has been held in Chuo-koen Central Park, but this year it is being held in on the site of the old baseball stadium across the road from the A-bomb Dome.

Schedule of events

  • 10:00-10:15 Parade
  • 10:15-10:40 Ceremony, speeches
  • 10:50 Traditional fire fighter acrobatics and training exercises display
