Pyrotechnic art made enjoyable with sea and air

A simple but beautiful fireworks festival at the Miyazaki Fishery Port in the city of Nishio. While the big explosions of the Star Mines populated the skies, at the sea boats decorated with hundreds of light bulbs ornate the surface.
On the same day of the fireworks, the local associations of citizens carry out the Miyazaki Gion Matsuri Festival, parading with their gigantic paper Odai sea bream and other gorgeously decorated floats around the streets. See also the Taiko Japanese Drums shows and get stuffed with the delicious Matsuri food sold at the festival stalls.

Lots and lots to see!
