A tradition in Higashihiroshima City’s Akitsu Town🎏
Every year the local fire department organizes a poetic event: 119 carp streamers swimming in the Mitsu River that runs through the center of the town.
As a fire corps, the number of carp streamers swims in line with 119, which is the emergency call for fire!
You can start in front of the station, and the distance is reasonable, so you can tour around on foot without feeling like a tourist✨
