Fire Drill at a gassho-style house in Hida no Sato

Sat 8 November

Many tourists always visit Hida no Sato where a number of important traditional houses and handcrafts are preserved. These include important cultural properties designated by the national government, Gifu prefecture, or the city of Takayama. It is very important to have adequate safety measures such as proper communication, early fire extinction and an evacuation guide to minimize the damage in case of fire. As part of this we conduct fire drills twice a year.
