Flood Fighting Drill
Flood-fighting drills are held throughout Japan every year before the flooding season begins in order for flood fighters, residents and local government staff members in the community to learn, exercise, and improve levee protection techniques as well as to raise awareness about levee protection. This large scale drill is carried out in the regional bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of Japan in cooperation with the riparian prefectures/cities.
