A fire pit is a physical object, often at beaches, where open fire is allowed 
inside a very large 1x1 or 2x2 m concrete box. They are usually not used for 
cooking, but rather sitting around at night for warmth and light. 
You could use them for cooking, I guess, but that is not a firepit's purpose. 

Now let's say you are at a suburban park. Grass, playgrounds, etc. There are 
some parks with permanent grill boxes on poles. 
You can't use your own grill, only these few public grills. You might even have 
to reserve one online or buy a permit to use it, but the physical grills exist. 


But what about a park with a designated BBQ area, but no provided BBQs? 


It *does* has picnic shelters and benches and a solid concrete "trashcan" for 
disposing of hot charcoal Ash(a separate park amenity). A sign says "cooking 
fires in grills only". This is a "bring your own BBQ" situation, where you 
bring your hibachi and cook and (rather than dumping the coals in the bushes or 
the grass and starting a forest fire) you dump your coals/ash in the special 
can when you are finished. This way, you can rinse your BBQ and put it back in 
your car without melting your car interior. 

So this park is "BYOBBQ" - you have permission to have a controlled charcoal 
fire ONLY in a grill that you bring. No ground fires allowed. No firepits 
exist. No grills are provided - but you can bring your own and you can use it. 
Some parks do not allow this. This park does. How do we tag that *permission*?

The question of "how do you tag that you are permitted to use a grill?" Is not 
answered with man_made=firepit.

These kind of grill rules do not exist in Japan (for most suburban 
Srecreational areas), however fire prone areas (like California) have very 
strict rules about using open flame almost anywhere. Parks have a myriad of 
rules. The city provided grills suck, and are often unclean or damaged, so the 
city provided a coal can and gives you permission to operate your own,  so a 
park ranger/policeman doesn't write you a ticket.
