NIGHT FIREFLY CANOE TOUR

See Hotaru dance above Lake Aokiko at night


One of the most amazing night tours you will experience in Japan – a canoe tour to see Japanese hotaru – fireflies – dance above the waters of Lake Aoki. Hotaru need incredibly pure water to breed, something which spring-fed Lake Aoki has in abundance. If you are here in the summer months, a tour to see fireflies is definitely a must do!
