Otake Waki River Fireworks Festival
July 20 @ 8:10 pm - 8:45 pm| Free
Located right on the border between Hiroshima and Yamaguchi Prefectures this river festival finishes off with 1000 fireworks spread over 50 minutes, making it one of the smaller fireworks festivals in Hiroshima Prefecture and attracts around 10,000 people. With the usual summer festival stalls and picturesque lantern floating, this could be a more relaxed experience than some of the bigger events; perhaps one at which to wear on your yukata.
The event will be postponed until July 21 in the event bad weather.
Access: 8 minutes walk from Waki JR Station on the Sanyo Line.
