The mood of the Akadomari Port Festival is warmed up by performances of local traditional folk arts and popular songs sung at Festival Eve. The main attraction on the day of the festival is a "grand sumo wrestling tournament on the Sea of Japan," which takes place on a ring (dohyo) floating in the bay. Spirited bouts, with slips and falls on a shaking ring, induce big, hearty cheers. Another highlight is a cardboard boat race, which features hand-crafted boats with unique characteristics. In the evening, the folk song and dance procession starts, and the festival reaches its climax with fireworks launched into the night sky.
