A 15 minute firework display over the sea is the dramatic finale to a series of elaborate reenactments of the triumphant return of Murakami Suigun “pirates” who ruled the Inland Sea during the Sengoku ‘warring states’ period. The reenactments feature highly detailed costumes, set pieces and a the parading of huge flaming pillars.
