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!
