Onomichi Sumiyoshi Fire Worksおのみち住吉花火まつり

Event

This large-scale fireworks display has continued from the middle of the Edo period as a ritual of the Sumiyoshi Shrine. Set on the Onomichi Canal, approximately 13,000 fireworks such as aquatic fireworks and starmines are launched, magnificently coloring the summer night sky. The venue is close to where the fireworks are launched, so you can feel them explode with your body and hear them as they go up. Before the fireworks are launched, mikoshi (portable shrines) are ceremoniously transported by gozabune (traditional luxury ships), a rare sight even in Japan.

          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.
