Tokyo Fire Alarm 2009
The annual Tokyo Fire Alarm event is held very spring in Roppongi Hills Arena.
These pictures were taken in the spring of 2009.
The big red fire truck was prominently parked in front of the arena.
The event had booths selling food and drinks …
…. some games for children teaching them fire safety …
… and life saving demonstrations.
The Tokyo Firefighter marching band performed several musical numbers.
The highlight of the event were the Tokyo firefighters, dressed in traditional wear, performing an impressive aerial exhibition of teamwork and daring.
The final act was an energetic performance by a local dance troupe, combining both modern and traditional dance moves, wearing colorful costumes.
Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the event and have a better understanding of fire safety.
