Miyama thatched village (Kayabuki no Sato) water spraying event

This event is actually a means of testing the fire prevention system in Miyama’s thatched village, which has been installed to protect this precious cultural heritage.
It has become a popular event in which many huge jets of water are simultaneously sprayed all over the thatched village roofs twice a year in autumn and spring. This also helps to raise awareness about fire prevention.
