View Fireflies at Isshiki, Minobu town 身延町一色のほたる on YOUTUBE, shot by Yamanashi "Home of Mt.Fuji" Sightseeing Net 富士の国やまなし観光ネット
We can see fireflies(hotaru)蛍 (2 kinds as Genji-botaru & Heike-botaru) in Yamanashi from late May to late July, especially in June. We would be drawn into the fantastic scenery just as we see fireflies flying and lighting up. Moreover I'm sure there would be a lot of people who would think that the scenery overlaps the images of "Hotaru no Haka 火垂るの墓 (Grave of the Fireflies)". Many Japanese cannot help feeling nostalgia for good old days.
You will be able to see fireflies in Hokuto city, Nishikatsura town, Dōshi village & Hayakawa town from now.
