Firefly Tour                    ▶▶▶▶Japanese

Come on board to explore the lake full of fireflies! Only the locals know, that even though hardly seen from the shore, the lake becomes full of shimmering lights at night. Join us on a fantastic venture of watching the fireflies dance on a fine night. The best days to look for fireflies are little cloudy and humid, just after rain, they are more likely to come out than after a dry and sunny day. Genji firefly is mostly seen in July and with coming August, the Heike firefly appears. Let’s capture some of the summer memories hopping by!
