Sakado Tsurugashima Dezome Shiki 2020 – The Sakado and Tsurugashima fire brigades join forces to bring one of the larger dezome shiki in the Saitama Prefecture.
This dezome shiki is also one of the longest, starting at 9 am and finishing up around 12.30 pm. They have virtual reality booths as well as several other events not available at other dezome around the prefecture.
The first 100 people (older than school age) in line can climb the fire truck’s ladder. Children can explore the various fire, ambulance and rescue trucks. They can also dress up in rescue clothes. There is a stamp rally and the first 1000 people to complete it will get a present of a fire truck eraser.
