Every year in August, on the 26th, an explosion of colors and shapes lights the sky over Miyajima behind the iconic torii gate of Itsukushima Shrine, offering an unforgettable spectacle.
This festival celebrates the memory of the brave Taira no Kiyomori (1118-1181) who labored for the prosperity of Miyajima.
Medieval ships gliding on the water, accompanied by the haunting sound of drums, flutes and other stringed instruments, all supported by a cheering crowd?
Why not take advantage of a visit to the sacred island of Miyajima to invoke good health and happiness for oneself and loved ones?
