When I moved into the area where I am now, I joined the local volunteer fire department. I was surprised to see a "nafudakake" hanging on the wall at the fire house. The feeling about it is the same as Mr. Clark decribes above. I guess it is not just a Japanese thing. It's something that seems to be appropriate to put up in any place where people gather regularly to improve themselves and to support the community.
