Shiraishi Island Fireworks Festival Aug. 27: Lodging availability update #Japan #setonaikai #SetoInlandSea
We're headed into the last big event of the summer: the Shiraishi Fireworks Festival, billed as the smallest fireworks festival in Japan! It's true, but it's a community effort where everyone contributes a little bit to the fireworks fund and on the night of the festival live bands play on the beach and the fireworks are set off right off the shore on the water. They're so close when they burst into "fire flowers" that you feel like you can touch them! Don't miss it this Saturday night! Here is the current availability for overnight on the island:
Shiraishi Guest House: Full.
Shiraishi International Villa: 3 rooms available (2 ppl per room)
Amagiso: Still has some rooms
Moooo! House: Three women-only tatami mat rooms or one group of males and females 6-8 ppl. Perfect for families. A step above camping!
Camping: Always free on Shiraishi Island Beach!

The Moooo! Bar on Shiraishi Island is open every day through August. From September, we'll be open only on Sundays and by appointment.

Contact us at shiraishireservations at yahoo dot come for availability for that Saturday night. Camping on the beach is free!

The sun sets at the Moooo! Bar on the beach on Shiraishi Island
We had a great Sea Day weekend on the island and we were run off our little hooves at the Moooo! Bar. We were treated to some truly stunning sunsets too! But now things have returned to normal and we are relaxing with moogaritas in our hooves. We do hope you'll join us! Lowing softly...

When accommodation is all full on Shiraishi Island, we open up the Moooo! House for individuals and groups of up to 8 people. This is your opportunity to sleep in bovine paradise with the Moooo! Bar and the beach in your front yard, and a Japanese garden in your backyard. The Moooo! House is only 2,000 yen per person per night. While we're sure you'll love staying with us, be aware that the reason it's so cheap is because there is no WiFi, no aircon and the bathing facilities are basic, with cold water only. Afterall, us cows don't need many luxuries as long as we have our moogaritas and pina mooladas in the trough. Three rooms available (two 6-mat rooms and one 4-mat room) in this traditional Japanese-style house where you can experience what it was like to live Japanese style in the old days. It does have its charm.
Contact us if you'd like to mooove in here this weekend (July 16-18) at shiraishireservations at yahoo dot com.
Have a happy Sea Day!
