This firework display, a summer event that lights up the skies over Dokai Bay, attracts around 300,000 visitors every year.

Passing ships are stopped for this event, during which fireworks are launched from a barge located out at sea, right in the middle of the bay.

A total of around 4,000 fireworks are launched, making for an exciting spectacle!

Highlights include a 260m-long Niagara Falls-like set piece, as well as a series of fireworks coordinated to music.

This meeting of fireworks and music is an event not to be missed!
