Hello, it is Mio.

An amazing festival "Kangen-Sai" were held last night on the island of Miyajima.

It is a floating festival on the beautifully decorated boats.
One boat is for three goddesses of Itsukushima shrine and musicians of classic court music take other boats.

The boats run between Itsukushima shrine and mainland at midnight.

I wondered if it was held because it was raining heavily early in the morning.
But in the evening, the rain was stop and the boats set sail for calm sea.

It was very fantastic appeared on lanterns on the dark sea.
