Aug/24, 2019 Miyajima Fireworks Festival3.8
from 8/24 '19 to 8/24 '19
Miyajima Island in Hiroshima Prefecture is one of the most scenic spots in Japan and is known for Itsukushima Shrine and its floating red torii gate.
On August 24, the Fireworks Display is held at Miyajima Town, which is one of the most famous fireworks shows in Japan.
The festival features Underwater Fireworks, a fantastical combination of aerial and water pyrotechnics. The highlight of the show is the uniquely choreographed fireworks set off from offshore boats that explode over the water surface; illuminating the torii gate and casting brilliant reflections on the water. Around 200 of the 5,000 fireworks are launched from the water.
The scene with the torii gate silhouetted by the illumination of the fireworks attracts thousands of photo enthusiasts.
Also, there are about 500 sightseeing ships for viewing fireworks from the best spot.
Dates: August 24 (Sat), 19:30pm～20:30pm
*In case of the stormy weather, it will be postponed to August 31.
Access: From Hiroshima Station, take the JR Sanyo Line to Miyajimaguchi Station. Then, take the ferry from Miyajimaguchi to Miyajima Pier (10 minutes).

Glad to have it, months ago, to this world renowned iconic landmark, the Itsukushima Floating Gate!!! Have read about it and now, in front of it.
During our trip, it was at low tide and we could venture out afar, to the striking red Torii. A huge enormous structure, standing majestically in the midst of the sea. Definitely, it commands respect and reverence.
Took many shots of this unique but mammoth structure.

This beautiful "floating" tori gate is super popular. Make sure you check the tides if you want a picture directly under the gate. Maybe bring waterproof footwear. There is minor construction at the base (as of 7/2019). Excellent trip, beautiful view.

Most magical day at this Place - A must and again we ventured of by ourselves and had no issues . The JR pass also includes the short ferry ride to get you to the Torii Gates . Check out the tide times so you can see it both when the tide is in and out! Enjoy my snaps! Love Japan ❤️

Iconic Torii gate worth visiting. It was nice to see if from the ferry at high tide and then walk near the gate at low tide. Check the tourist information desk at the ferry terminal for high & low tide hours and plan your visit accordingly. Highly recommended.

Worth seeing during a sunset (which will fall behind the gate if you are viewing it from the beach area). I would recommend using the JR ferry if you have the pass, otherwise taking the ferry from the memorial park will be costly; ~3000YEN per person.
Check the tides before going out, it is best to see the gate during high tide where the base will be covered in water and your photos will be clear of people because the water prevent people gathering close to the gate.
