SpotKangensai

"The Kangensai, or Orchestral Music Festival is a gorgeous show which unfolds atop the surface of the sea and is the largest ceremony at Itsukushima Shrine. Colorfully decorated boats carrying orchestras aboard cruise along the coast. It started after Taira-no Kiyomori introduced Kangen-no Asobi, or an orchestra festival, which was very popular in Kyoto at that time.
Every year in August, a fireworks display held from the waters on the sea in front of Itsukushima Shrine is the largest such display in Western Japan."
