NIGHT FIREFLY CANOE TOUR

NIGHT FIREFLY CANOE TOUR

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!

LAKE AOKI HOTARU TOUR

From our base at spring-fed Lake Aokiko, board a 10 person Voyageur Canoe and with a guide paddle through the natural habitat of the glowing fireflies. By canoe we can get right under the branches where the fireflies are and they literally light up the night over our heads and around our canoe.
