(家島天神祭)

It is the text from here.

Ieshima is a small island in the Inland Sea. Each of these islands can be reached by ship from the Port of Himeji. The Ieshima Tenjin Festival is a summer festival held at Ieshima-jinja Shrine. On July 24 and 25, the Ieshima Tenjin Festival is celebrated, in a tradition spanning over 1,000 years. Aboard a gorgeous ship with banners streaming, a traditional performance called shishimai (“lion dance”) is presented. At night a seaborne fireworks display lights up the skies.
