Shirahama Ama MatsuriThis event started after the Boso seaside was designated as a quasi-national park. Women would dress as ama divers, following a Japanese tradition of collecting pearls in the sea. The event takes place at night, with the women swimming in the sea to pray for the safety of the fishermen and good fish harvest. Come and see this beautiful event, and enjoy the fireworks.
