Miyazu Toro Nagashi and Fireworks Display宮津燈籠流し花火大会

Event

As a traditional event that originated roughly 400 years ago with the Bon no Shoro Nagashi during the era of Miyazu Clan leader, Kyogoku Takahiro, the fireworks display itself has a history of nearly 100 years. Shoro floats-a memorial of ancestors-and 10,000 toro lanterns are shipped off into Miyazu Bay, signaling the launch of nearly 3,000 fireworks-like sea starmines-which brilliantly light up the summer night's sky. The evocative scene of soft light from toro lanterns filling the ocean surface and continually ascending fireworks is a certainly worth a look.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
