posted on June 20, 2016

Tokyo Fire Department holds an annual ceremony of firefighting and rescue demonstrations.

The New Year's Fire Review, Dezome-shiki in Japanese, will be held on early January every year since 1659, two years after a devastating fire left two thirds of the capital in ashes. Tokyo Fire Department starts the ceremony with a parade featuring fire trucks and choppers, then moving on to a rescue drills. There are also performances of ladder-top stunts by the Edo Firemanship Preservation Association.
