Miyajima Fireworks Festival

August 25, 2018 @ 7:40 pm - 8:40 pm

| Free

Hiroshima’s most well known fireworks festival. 5000 fireworks explode over the sea silhouetting Itsukushima Shrine’s O-torii.

Worth seeing, but expect huge crowds (300,000 people showed up last year) and you should get there early to avoid a fight for the prime viewing spots.

For those relying on the train, a good tip for the return trip on the way back to Hiroshima is to take the first train heading in the opoosite direction (Iwakuni bound) one stop so you can grab a seat on the next Hiroshima bound train.

Read a bitter sweet account of a fireworks day trip to Miyajima from back in 2006 here and get some tips on getting (and keeping) a good spot from Gyoza Fox here (lots of nice photos here too).

The display will go ahead in light rain, but in the event of stormy weather will be postponed until August 12 or 13.
