"Hiroshima Port ""Dream"" Fireworks Festival - Fireworks Museum" (広島みなと夢花火大会)
Conceptualizing a dream, approximately 10,000 fireworks are launched for this event, which is a typical of Hiroshima. Always held on the fourth Saturday of July, the fireworks synchronized to music seem to welcome summer to Hiroshima. In addition to the standard flower shaped Niagara Falls and starmines, at this festival, Hiroshima specialties such as the maple leaf, and the rice spatula are depicted in dazzling original forms. It is best to confirm transportation routes to the site in advance, as there is no parking in the vicinity.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
