One of Japan’s three biggest port festas. On May 3 enjoy watching a “banana auction” which is said to have originated at Moji Port, and on May 4 watch a parade of Genji and Heike clan warriors (in costume only!), art performances and more. Don’t miss the taiko drum and yosakoi dance performances at Chuo Hiroba, and feast on local Moji food such as yakikare too. Stay until 20:00 on May 4 for the annual fireworks.
