Kangen-sai, or Court Music Festival of Itsukushima Shrine, Miyajima-cho, Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima Pref.

8th August, 2017 | Itsukushima Shrine, Miyajima-cho, Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima
Mikoshi (a portable shrine) on goza-bune, brightly illuminated sacred boat is towed by three boats to the large red-painted torii gate standing in the sea and then towed away across the channel to Jigozen Shrine on the mainland, while court music is played on the boat.

Then the mikoshi sails for two other shrines in Miyajima, and eventually returns to Itsukushima Shrine through the torii gate at around midnight.   (*reference: Japan Times)
