Dezomeshiki New Year’s Fire Review
January 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
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.
The display is held at Ujina Minato Park in front of Hiroshima Port Terminal.
Schedule of events
- 10:00-10:15 Parade
- 10:15-10:40 Ceremony, speeches
- 10:50-12:00 Traditional fire fighter acrobatics and training exercises display
The event will go ahead in light rain, but will be cancelled if rain turns heavy.
