The spectacular Miyajima Water Fireworks Festival sees 5,000 fireworks launched across the strait of water between the island and the mainland, doubling the light and color with reflections in the water. Each year follows a different theme. The sight of pyrotechnics exploding behind the silhouette of the famous “floating torii gate” of Miyajima shrine is one of the most photogenic sights Japan has to offer.
