July 24 (Sat) Minato Yume Fireworks Festival

Marking the arrival of summer, this huge firework display is held near Ujina Port. Held in conjunction with the Ujina Summer Festival which runs from 12pm it pays to get down there early. Stake out your spot with your "blue sheet" go check out the festival fun until sunset.

From J-Hoppers Hiroshima, take the tram #3 down to Hiroshima Port (about a 50-minute ride) and set up a space near the water for the best views. The fireworks start at 8pm. There'll be some 10,000 fireworks to "ooh" and "aah" at. It is an impressive display and the atmosphere created by all the groups and families lining the water is really good.

Try to get there early if you have a large group.

If it rains, it will be held on the July 25th at the same place.

Date & Time : July 24 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Place : Ujina Port, Ichiman Ton Berth
