To learn about the history of fire fighting in the Edo period

From the third to the fifth floor, you can learn about the history of the fire department from the Edo period to the present day.

First on the third and fourth floors, the Meiji period and the Showa period and the history of the modern fire department are expressed by the animation and the photographs at that time.And on the fifth floor, the streets of the Edo period and the scene of the fire department are reproduced beautifully with a diorama.You can see a glimpse of the scenery you’ve seen once at the time of the period.

And on the sixth floor, there is a special exhibition for every period, and there is a book library with a complete collection of books on fire related to the seventh floor.

Where you can sit in the cockpit of a fire helicopter.

There is a fire helicopter, Kamome, on the fifth floor of the Fire Museum.It is a very rare experience because you can sit in the cockpit.Please try to experience the feeling that the control stick is firmly grasped and actually drive it.

It may be closed due to the weather on the day.

On the first floor of the Fire Museum, Japanese fire engines and ambulances are exhibited, but there are also fire engines around the world.

In the pump vehicle, there are “Arenence Fox fire pump automobile” imported from the United States, “Stutz fire pump automobile”, and “Maxims fire pump automobile.”.In addition, the “Isuzu Mets Ladder Automobile” imported from Germany, the “Benz Mets Sitz Vehicle” and the “Iveco Iveco Magirus Ladder car” imported from Italy are exhibited in the ladder car.

I think it was very convenient to think that the fire fighting activity was conducted by such a fire truck.I can see that there are a lot of equipment in comparison to the old fire cars.

On the third floor of the Fire Museum, you can wear fire engines and take a commemorative photo of the fire engines.The children who are looking for fire fighters are especially very popular, but the fire clothes can be captured by fire fighters, as well as adults.There are 3 types of fire protection clothes, the “Pump unit”, the “Special Fire company” and the “Special Rescue Team”, and the helmet and the helmet.

There is also a picture panel where you can see the appearance of the emergency staff, police and the police and so on.Try various poses and try to enjoy shooting.

On the third floor of the Fire Museum, there is a stage where you can enjoy a series of flow from fire to extinction by using a model or a video.It is a very popular corner where children can learn about the fire extinguishing activity and start of fire extinguishing activities, so it is a very popular corner for children to understand, and it is a very popular corner for children in the 119.

There is also a game corner where you can experience fire fighting activities from the operation of fire engines through the screen.The game points will be stored and the results will be announced at the end of the game as the fire will extinguish the fire.

At each of the points, the Fire Department, Fire Chief, Fire Command, Fire Command, Fire Chief, Fire Station, Fire Marshal, Fire Chief, Fire 司監, Fire Chief, and Fire Department will be awarded.I really want to aim for the fire commissioner.

On the first basement floor of Fire Museum there is a museum shop where you can find the original goods of the Fire Museum and the disaster prevention goods.In particular, there are a lot of products that are different from those sold on the streets.In particular, there is a so-called “Mutsu Hood” that can run through the smoke for about 3 minutes.
