Mibu no Hanadaue壬生の花田植
A traditional agricultural event which celebrates the gods of the fields and prays for a tranquil rice growing season as well as abundant harvests. The festival is designated a prefectural and national Intangible Folk Cultural Property as well as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. The festival's roots lie in the practice of hayashida, musical accompaniment provided to help ease the heavy burden of rice planting and harvesting and improve farm work efficiency. Decorated cattle help plow the field as young women sing songs to musical accompaniment and busily plant rice, creating a gorgeous scene like something straight out of a historical picture scroll.

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.
