Firefly spectacle

Our friendly B&B owner Kiyoko-san kindly offered to take us to firefly watching. We got on her mini-van with Japanese, American and Dutch guests and drove to a rice paddy area. It was the last week of the firefly season, Kiyoko-san told us. When we arrived, some cars already parked here and there.

We walked a while on a forest road and as our eyes got used to the darkness, we started to see thousands of firefly flying in the dense foliage. The higher up we got, the more fireflies were there. It felt like we were floating in the darkness surrounded by thousands of flying lights.

What a captivating spectacle it was!
