Fire Hydrant

January 17th, 2007 at 06:23 pm

One of the things that I love about living in Japan is some things are so different than you'd see in the US. Take fire hydrants, for example.

In our neighborhood, they also store fire equipment in boxes along the main streets.

From a taxpayer standpoint, I'm not sure this is the most efficient way to do it, but it shows that even basics like emergency services work a bit differently in other countries.

    That has to be a headache when there is a fire, is the lid locked?

    LOL cute. The first time I went to a gas station in Japan I was shocked that all of the gas pump hoses were hanging from the ceiling. Practical but funny as well... Do you mind if I use these pictures for a monthly newsletter I do for the fire departments in our state?

    Wow, that's awesome. Even the fire hydrant is different eh?

    The Japanese are probably a little touchier about fires than other people given their recent history includes massive fires in their cities.
