About 15,000 fireworks are launched from both sides of the strait, Shimonoseki City in Yamaguchi and Kitakyushu City Moji Ward in Fukuoka. This firework festival is one of the most famous in West Japan and is the only one in Japan to be held together across the sea and prefectural boundary.
The biggest attraction of the Kanmon Strait Firework festival is the line-up of fireworks making use of the location of the strait. In particular, the fireworks are launched from the sea where they keep a safe distance from the audience. Therefore, larger and more powerful fireworks are used, which can be difficult to launch in the center of a city.
