Fireflies at Dusk

A big annual event in the Nakakanbayashi district, where the flickering lights of fireflies illuminate the pure waters of a stream. The event is enlivened by many temporary stalls, a mini-concert and more. You can wander along a tributary of the Kanbayashi River, known locally as Firefly River, and enjoy the magical sight of the fireflies flitting around in the dusk.
