Many fireflies flying again this year


The firefly protection project of Osato International Inc. has been going on since 2009. May 30 was the 40th day after we had observed firefly larvae coming on shore in rain.  We could see many fireflies flying on a balmy night with gentle wind again this year.


Although it had been quite hot during the day, it was a bit chilly in the morning and evening. We could see about 50 fireflies at that night as if they were greeting us.


We have more fireflies especially in the upper course of the brook and can enjoy such fantastic scenery. The warm lights of fireflies look like a milky way on earth.


We thought strongly again that we would continue the firefly protection project so that we will be able to enjoy this scenery.
