Year’s First Gun Shooting in Iwakuni

One of the most historical annual events

The event is held on the riverbed under Kintaikyo Bridge. Participants in samurai costumes of the feudal age line up on the ground and shoot matchlock guns at the order of a commander. The roaring sounds echo against Shiroyama Mountain.
