There`s not much in Aioi but there is the famous Aioi Peiron Festival from May 24-25th every year. This is a dragonboat racing festival that has its roots in China. Oarsmen & women compete in the harbor while beautiful fireworks light up the night on the 1st day.

Riot Police are gearing up for possible fights after the festival.

    You seem to be very fond of fireworks :) Hmm, do the boats rise out of the water like that during an actual race?
