Firefly Festival in Shinkamigoto

  • 3495views

A truly enchanting experience.

Held from May 25th (Saturday) - June 9th (Sunday) for the year of 2024

The arrival of fireflies signals the beginning of summer.
After the sun sets, they arise from the riverside, glowing, and dance in the dark of night. The sight alone is enchanting.

During this period, there will be no events or vendors, but the viewing areas will be maintained and the parking lot will be attended. Enjoy the gleaming lights of the slowly glistening genjibotaru and the quickly flickering himebotaru.
