Firefly Canoe Tour

fireflies in japan

One of the most amazing night tours you will experience in Japan - a canoe tour to see Japanese hotaru. People ask where to see fireflies and the secret is incredibly pure water.

From our base at spring-fed Lake Aokiko, load into into a 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. If you are here in the summer months, a tour to see fireflies in Japan is definitely a must do!
