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).

ATTENTION to all visitors: Since June 2019 they are renovating it. They say it will last for 1 year at least but they didn’t fix a date yet.
So don‘t come if you just want to see „the floating gate“ if you don’t want to get disappointed.

Clearly one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. The Torii Gate is amazing to watch. There can be a lot of people there so if you want to get some good photos you should go early in the morning or later in the evening. Beware that it will look different depending on the tides of the sea. For me it's the most beautiful when the water is surrounding it, but some people want to get closer and then of course it's the other way around.

It's one of Japanese world Heritage. You must see it when you visit Hiroshima. The island is quite large so you can spend whole day, seeing a couple of traditional architecture and light hiking. Many places to eat meals and snacks, oysters and Maple leaf sweets are famous here.

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.

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.
