I had the chance to go to the 22th Female Volunteer Fire Corps National Tournament in Yokohama on October 15th, along Misasa's team who was representing the Tottori Prefecture. I am making a short documentary about Misasa's participation. I also took few photos, so I upload some shots.

Voici quelques photos prises lors du 22ème Tournoi National des Femmes Pompiers Volontaires, auquel Misasa a participé représentant le département de Tottori. Je suis actuellement en train de réaliser un petit documentaire sur la préparation et la participation de notre équipe. Le jour du tournoi, j'ai pu également prendre quelques photos, alors j'en mets quelques unes en ligne.
