Ube Port Commemorative Fireworks (記念宇部市花火大会)
The largest fireworks display in Yamaguchi Prefecture is held at Ube port, which forms the basis of industrial development in the city of Ube. The chief attraction of this display is the so-called musical fireworks, in which the launching of the fireworks and the background music are synchronized by computer. The local FM station broadcasts the entire event live, giving listeners the feeling of being there as well as allowing them to receive traffic updates and conversations about the fireworks display. About 10,000 fireworks are launched non-stop for about an hour, and the event attracts about 130,000 spectators from inside and outside the prefecture.

Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
