Hiroshima Port “Dream” Fireworks Festival
July 28 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Hiroshima city’s big fireworks extravaganza. Held in the bay in front of the 10,000 Ton Cruise Ship Berth (ichi-man-ton-baasu) next to Ujina Hatoba Koen near Hiroshima Port, this display is big and loud with around 10,000 bangs for your buck (although it’s laid on for free). It’s also an hour long. Many (and we mean many) people head down to Ujina, a lot decked out summer yukata to catch the show. Others watch from further afield. Ujina-bashi Bridge with its big white arch is a popular spot, but we have watched from the riverside as far away as from the riverside in Yoshijima.
