Dezomeshiki Firefighters Expo

January 5, 2021 @ 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.

  • 10:15-10:40 Ceremony, speeches
  • 10:50-12:00 Traditional fire fighter acrobatics and training exercises display

Cancelled in the event of heavy rain.
